Police say Brownsville tipsters played big role in arrest of mass shooting suspect
Tips from neighbors played a critical role in tracking down a gunman involved in the mass shooting at a Brownsville block party, in which 38-year-old Jason Pagan was killed and 11 others injured, authorities said Thursday.
Kyle Williams, a 20-year-old Brownsville resident, was arrested Wednesday afternoon in connection to the shooting, which broke out during an annual celebration near Hegeman Avenue and Sackman Street on July 27.
Fifteen shots were fired by two different guns, top brass said Thursday — one of them belonging to Williams.
“He gave a full confession to his actions that night and admitted to firing the gun that killed Jason Pagan,” said Deputy Chief Michael Kemper, commanding officer of Brooklyn North Detective.
