Shalimar Birkett fatally shot while attending a vigil in Brooklyn
The 32-year-old woman killed in a drive-by shooting in Brooklyn late Monday had been attending a vigil for another victim of gun violence, according to cops and police sources. It remained unclear Tuesday whether she was the intended target.
Birkett’s mother told The Post Tuesday she was “sad and depressed” over her daughter’s death before hanging up. Nine shell casings were recovered from the scene, and one vehicle was struck by gunfire, police sources said.
No arrests have been made. Bobbsemple was blasted in the chest during a house party dispute on Remsen Avenue near Avenue A in East Flatbush early Monday. He was pronounced dead at the Kings County Hospital Center. Bobbsemple appears to have accidentally stepped on a gang member’s foot or somehow showed a sign of disrespect, police said.
Another man, 30, was wounded in that shooting — with injuries to his shoulder and both legs, cops said. Investigators are looking into whether Birkett’s shooting was gang-related, police sources said. A man who answered Birkett’s door only said “she was a great mother” before asking a reporter to leave.
