A group of teens attacked a 15-year-old girl in Crown Heights and stole her Air Jordans.


A teen accused of being involved in the videotaped March attack on a 15-year-old girl who was robbed of her Air Jordans was shot dead in Brooklyn on Tuesday, law enforcement sources said.

Tyquan Howard, 16, was shot about 1 p.m. in front of a building on St. Johns Place near Rochester Avenue and died hours later at Brookdale Hospital, police said.

It’s unclear what sparked the shooting and no arrests were made as of early Wednesday, cops said.

Howard was arrested and charged with robbery and gang assault for being among a crew of teens caught-on-camera ambushing the victim on March 5 on Utica Avenue in Crown Heights, according to sources. The circumstances of his release were not clear.

The posse of punks swarmed, punched and kicked the girl in the head while she curled helplessly on the sidewalk, the stunning footage showed.

One of her attackers then pulled the black and white Air Jordan 1 sneakers off her feet before the group ran off, the video shows.

A teen was shot dead in revenge slaying for his alleged role in the beatdown of a 15-year-old girl to steal her Air Jordans, Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison said Thursday.

The 16-year-old Tyquan Howard was shot in the stomach around 1 p.m. Tuesday outside a building on St. Johns Place near Rochester Avenue in Crown Heights, cops said.

Howard died hours later at Brookdale Hospital.

“We had a retaliation shooting in the 77 [Precinct] that stemmed from a young woman that was jumped in robbed by a group of boys,” Harrison said when asked about the uptick in shootings.

“It’s all the stemming from crew-on-crew, gang-on-gang violence,” he told city council members during a budget hearing.

The 16-year-old and his crew punched and kicked the teen girl in the head and body as she writhed on the ground in pain, according to shocking footage from the March 5 incident.

One of the punks grabbed the girl’s Air Jordan sneakers before the group ran off, the video shows.

Howard was arrested following the attack on the teen girl on March 5 and charged with robbery and gang assault. It is unclear specifically why he was released from jail with charges pending.
