BROOKLYN — A man who was shot in Brooklyn 33 years ago, died of his injuries this past October — and now the case is being called a homicide.

On Monday June 14, 1982, Billy Yee was shot on the corner of Sands Street and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway by Stanley Cho, police said.

When officers arrived they found Yee in a car with gunshot wounds to the upper torso.

Emergency Medical Services transported him to Cumberland Hospital in critical but stable condition.

Yee succumbed to his injuries on October 2, 2015.

The Medical Examiner’s Office has now deemed this case a homicide and has charged Cho with assault and criminal possession of a weapon.

Additional charges are being determined by the Brooklyn Distict Attorney’s office.
