A fiend shot and killed a man outside his Bushwick Houses apartment on Thursday afternoon, cops said.

Bobby Roberts took two bullets to the torso at 12:53 pm as he stepped onto a rear stairwell of his building on Moore Street between Humboldt Street and Bushwick Avenue, police said. Paramedics carried him the six blocks to Woodhull Medical Center, where a doctor pronounced him dead on arrival, according to officers.

There were no witnesses to the shooting, but police are looking for a man in dark clothing who walked out of the stairwell at about the same time as Roberts was shot, law enforcement officials said.

The authorities urge anyone with information about the shooting to call (800) 577–TIPS, visit, or text-message their leads to 274637, then enter “TIP577”.
