Someone shot a man to death on Saturday afternoon in front of the Gowanus Houses building where he lived, police said.
Cops received a 911 call just after 3 pm and responding officers found 21-year-old Leroy Olmstead lying on the pavement with a single gunshot wound to the torso in front of 423 Baltic St., according to the authorities.
Paramedics transported Olmstead to Lutheran Medical Center and doctors there pronounced him dead on arrival, police said.
Police declined to release further details about the shooting but people at the scene on Saturday reported hearing just one shot.
The shooting is the first murder of the year in the 76th Precinct, which encompasses Red Hook, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, and parts of Gowanus. One murder took place in the area during 2014.
