BED-STUY -

A 23-year-old man was shot and killed Thursday night in Bed-Stuy outside 449 Nostrand Ave.

Police say Devon Williams was shot following an argument with an unknown person and his brother was there to witness the shooting.

"As soon as I saw my brother hit the ground, I ran to my brother," said Williams’ brother.

He said other family members hid behind cars for safety during the argument.

Williams leaves behind a 7-year-old son and 4-month-old daughter.

"He was a funny loving person, everything was always funny to him, family oriented, always keeping family together," his brother said.

Williams’ family gathered together Friday to light candles in his honor.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call police.
