NEW YORK — Zurana Horton, a Brooklyn mother of 12, was killed in Brownsville last week while trying to shield children from bullets from a shootout.
The NYPD’s Crime Stoppers program, the Urban Community Council, and 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement have put up a $15,000 reward for the capture of the person that killed Horton.
The New York Daily News report:
Zurana Horton was walking in front of a Lucky Supermarket on Watkins St. at Pitkin Ave. near Public School 298 when a barrage of gunfire erupted. Cops said a man firing from a nearby rooftop at a second gunman fatally hit Horton as she threw her body in front of a group of kids.
An 11-year-old girl and a 31-year-old Brooklyn mother were wounded.
Zurana Horton’s son , Tyquran, 16, said he and his brothers and sisters, ranging from 1 to 18 years old, are devastated. “She was the only person in my heart,” he said.
