New York (WPIX) — Some violent hecklers shot and and killed a 24 year-old man for defending his mother.
Verbena Burgess was singing outside of her South Bronx home on Morris Avenue Sunday night, when a group of young men started insulting her, going as far to throw a bottle and paper at the woman.
After Burgess threatened to call the cops, the group of men told her, “Do it. Call the cops. Call your boys.”
Tony Burgess, one of her sons, brawled with the group of men, then went home.
Later, the thugs burst into the family’s home and shot Burgess in the head.
He later died at Lincoln Hospital.
”I just feel like if you start something and a fight is what you get yourself into, a fight is what it should be. It shouldn’t have to be you getting a gun,” the boy’s brother told the Post.
No arrests have been made.
