Execution in Canarsie

A cold-hearted goon murdered a man — execution style — on a Canarsie sidewalk in the pre-dawn hours on Wednesday, according to police.

The body of Dennis Hamer, 18, was found sprawled across the pavement beside Flatlands Fourth Street near E. 108th Street at 6:15 am, bleeding from a single gunshot wound to his head.

A single bullet casing was found at the scene, on the sidewalk not far from Hamer’s lifeless feet, sources at the scene confirmed.

Hamer’s record included a string of marijuana possession charges and a recent, unresolved attempted burglary charge from earlier this month, according to the district attorney’s office.
