2012 Brookdale hospital slaying remains unsolved

More than four years after a mother of three was fatally shot in the back of the head outside a hospital in eastern Brooklyn, investigators are not much closer to an arrest.



Shalema Gaskin was visiting her young daughter at Brookdale Medical Center when someone approached her from behind and fired the fatal shot into her skull, police say. 



It happened in the middle of the night at the hospital's rear entrance. At the time, there were no surveillance cameras in the area.



Police say the best lead they've had is a witness who said they saw a man fleeing the area after the shooting.
