Cops shot and killed an 18-year-old man in Brooklyn who was armed with a fake gun early Sunday after he walked into a bodega and robbed the clerk at gunpoint, authorities said.

Sergio Reyes entered the Garden Deli and Grill at Irving Avenue and Starr Street in Bushwick at around 1 a.m. and pointed the apparent weapon at the employee, cops said.

“He had a gun,” a shaken store employee told The Post. “He tried to rob the place.”

Reyes then demanded the clerk hand over several bottles of Corona and Heineken beer before running outside.

Cops confronted Reyes on the street outside and opened fire after he aimed the imitation gun at them, police said.

He was hit several times and was taken to Woodhull Hospital, where he later died, cops said.

“A black firearm that appears to be an imitation pistol was recovered at the scene,” police said.

Parents of teen shot by cops 14 times push for probe

The parents of an 18-year-old man shot 14 times by NYPD cops after attempting to steal beer implored Acting Brooklyn DA Eric Gonzalez on Monday to ramp up the investigation into their son’s February shooting.

“It’s been almost two months since our son was shot 14 times on a residential block,” grieving father Antonio Taplanto said of teen Sergio Reyes, who was killed after attempting to hold up a Bushwick bodega with a pellet gun for two packs of Corona. “We need more information on how those bullets came to tear him apart.”

Taplanto, who stood beside his silently crying wife , Patricia Reyes, said their son was set to graduate this spring and had been applying to college in the hopes of becoming a social worker.

“Our family wants a full investigation, the teary-eyed father said in Spanish through activist Jesus Gonzalez, of the non-profit Churches United for Fair Housing. “We are concerned the case has not been investigated thus far.”

Reyes’ parents spoke with Gonzalez and other higher-ups for over an hour Monday before speaking to press.

Family lawyer Roger Asmar said he was unable to comment on whether a grand jury had been convened, only noting that an investigation into the case was ongoing.

A spokeswoman with the Brooklyn DA’s Office declined to comment.

Reyes was shot Feb. 19 after leaving the store, when cops ran after him and ordered him to stop, officials said. Instead, the teen pulled out a pellet gun and allegedly pointed it at the officers, prompting them to open fire.

He died later at Woodhull Hospital.
