Quantcast

By Rich Bockmann

The mother of the 24-year-old who was shot dead in South Jamaica Monday picked up her son’s gun and fired back at his killer, police said.

The woman, whose name the police did not release, fired at the gunman who shot her son, Darrell Lynch, over an argument about a parking spot outside a house, on 113th Avenue between Sutphin Boulevard and 155th Street, around 7:30 p.m., the NYPD said.

No charges have been filed against the mother.

After he was hit in the leg by the bullet, Lynch got into his car and crashed into the house, and by the time emergency responders got him to Jamaica Hospital, he was dead, police said.

Authorities described the gunman as a heavy-set black man wearing all white and a matching doo-rag.

On New Year’s Day, 22-year-old Julio Mora was shot dead inside the same building on 113th Avenue.

Police arrested Sheldon Smith, 26, several weeks later in mid-May and charged him with Mora’s murder.

Relatives at Lynch’s home about a dozen blocks away from the crime scene declined to comment Tuesday morning.
