Teen Member of Anti-Gun Violence Group Fatally Shot in Soho

The tragic death of 16-year-old Mahki Brown, an active member of an anti-gun violence group and avid basketball player, has sent shockwaves through the community. Brown was fatally shot in broad daylight by a gunman riding a Citi Bike outside a Soho hotel, leaving loved ones and community members devastated.

Described as a caring and respectful individual, Brown’s untimely passing has left a void in the hearts of those who knew him. His mother, too distraught to speak at length, tearfully expressed her grief, recalling his recent gesture of tattooing her name on his arm.

While authorities have yet to determine a motive for the shooting, sources suggest a possible school-related dispute or altercation between groups of girls may have preceded the tragic incident. Brown, a student at Broome Street Academy Charter High School, was caught in the crossfire, succumbing to his injuries despite efforts to save him.

Friends and family remember Brown as inseparable from his girlfriend and deeply passionate about basketball. His basketball coach and the 67th Precinct Clergy Council, where Brown played on the nonprofit’s basketball team, paid tribute to his character and contributions to the community.

In the wake of Brown’s death, calls for action to address gun violence have intensified, with community leaders urging Citibike to take measures to prevent further tragedies. The senseless loss of a promising young life underscores the urgent need for collective efforts to combat gun violence and ensure the safety of all individuals, particularly youth, in our communities.
