According to police reports, Thomas allegedly opened fire in the attack that claimed Brown’s life. Brown, described as an avid basketball player from Crown Heights, Brooklyn, sustained fatal injuries after being shot in the head and leg during the brazen daylight assault.

The victim, a student at the nearby Broome Street Academy Charter High School, was attempting to mediate a dispute between two female classmates when the violence erupted, as per NYPD Chief of Detectives Joseph Kenny. Subsequently, one of the girls involved sought assistance from her brother, leading to the arrival of two males on a Citi Bike, one of whom opened fire on the group of approximately 30 individuals.

Brown, who was with his girlfriend at the time of the incident, was rushed to Bellevue Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Witnesses recounted the harrowing scene, with one describing Brown collapsing in an alley adjacent to the hotel following the shooting.
