CROWN HEIGHTS - A family in Crown Heights continues to seek justice after their loved one was caught in a fatal crossfire with police and a murder suspect in 2011.
Denise Gay, 56, was sitting on her stoop when she was shot and killed by a stray bullet during a gunfight between police and Leroy Webster on Sept. 5, 2011.
Webster was expected to be sentenced today for murder, but it has been delayed until the end of the month. He faces 50 years to life in prison.

The Gay family is concerned that the district attorney’s office will now drop the investigation against the officers, who reportedly fired 73 shots during the exchange.
Leslie Gay, Denise’s brother, believes the fatal shot came from the NYPD. He currently has a civil suit against the NYPD that says officers used excessive force when they traded shots with Webster.
The district attorney's office tells News 12 that the investigation into the shooting found no criminality on the part of police.
