He didn’t live to see the new year.
A teenager was found fatally shot in the head on a Jamaica street late Thursday night in New York City’s final reported homicide of 2015.
Officers from the 103rd Precinct found 16-year-old Jihad Jackson of Edgewood Street in Rosedale gunned down at the corner of 109th Avenue and Merrick Boulevard at 11:30 p.m. Thursday. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.
No arrests have been made, but an investigation is ongoing.
Editor’s note: An earlier version, based on information police released, erroneously identified Jackson as a Long Island City resident. We regret any confusion which may have resulted.
