Someone shot and killed a Ditmas Park man on Tuesday night outside a bodega blocks away from his home, police said.
Raphael Kurton, 27, was arguing with his assailant outside a corner store on Newkirk Avenue at E. 17th street shortly before 9:30 pm, when the gunman pulled a firearm and shot Kurton at least once in the torso, according to a police spokeswoman.
Kurton staggered about half a block toward his Ocean Avenue home before collapsing on Newkirk Avenue between E. 17th and E. 18th streets, where cops responding to a 911 call found him lying unconscious, according to a report.
Responders transported Kurton to Kings County Medical Center, where doctors pronounced him dead, cops said.
There have been no arrests and police are investigating the shooting, a report said.
