Police are investigating the possible murder of a Crown Heights teenager found shot to death on Tuesday.

Cops responding to a 911 call found 18-year-old Davion Powell suffering multiple gunshot wounds to his stomach and chest in front of a St. Johns Place residential building between Utica and Rochester avenues at 5:11 p.m.

Paramedics rushed the young man to Kings County Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to police.

The investigation has not been ruled a homicide, but a spokesman for the department said that’s likely to change sometime soon.
