Tylee Felder, of Downtown Brooklyn, died on Wednesday, Sept. 9 after suffering a gunshot wound to the head.

Felder was shot on Dekalb Avenue near Classon Avenue just after 4:30 pm on Tuesday along with two other men. One victim was shot in the chest, and another in the leg, both additional victims are suspected to survive, the NYPD said. 

No arrests have been made in the shooting, according to cops. 

The Sept. 8 triple shooting comes during a violent summer in New York, which saw shootings surpass 1,000 before Labor Day weekend. In Bedford Stuyvesant’s 79th Precinct, where Tuesday’s shooting took place, shootings are up 86 percent compared to the same period last year as of Sept. 10, according to NYPD data.
