Police are searching for the goon who killed 19-year-old Trevon Dickens of East New York and left him to die in the middle of E. 91st Street in East Flatbush on March 15.

A Department of Sanitation worker was plowing snow on the street, right near Railroad Playground, at about 6:15 pm when it came across Dickens’ body, and called 911, according to a police department spokesman.

Emergency responders arrived at the scene between Ditmas Avenue and Avenue B and discovered the teen dead with one gunshot wound to his head, the spokesman said.

Police have not yet made any arrests and the investigation is ongoing, the spokesman said.

Police are asking anyone with information about crimes to call (800) 577–8477, submit tips at, or text 274637 followed by TIP577.
