BROOKLYN - Police are investigating a deadly shooting in Canarsie last night.

Police say the victim, Stevenson Blackett, was shot in the head in his own home while his family was asleep upstairs.

Blackett's daughter, Terrel Blackett, was sleeping one floor up with her mother and three young children when she heard gunshots. Her mother ran downstairs and saw two men run out of the house, she said.

Blackett was a plumber who took young kids under his wing to teach them the trade, the family said.

He was one of seven siblings.
