BROOKLYN - Police have zeroed in on the suspect who allegedly gunned down a woman in the courtyard of her own Bed-Stuy apartment building.

Investigators released a photo of the suspect, who they've identified as 21-year-old Corey Brown.

Brown is accused of shooting 24-year-old Nicoleia Taylor in broad daylight Monday at the Lafayette Gardens Housing Complex, located at 470 Dekalb Ave.
