Queens, New York ( Mckoy’s News) – An ex boyfriend shot at by lover/ Queens Corrections Officer, co-worker, sparked a wild foot-chase outside a Queens prison Tuesday morning, May 2, that ended in her suicide, law enforcement sources and witnesses told reporters.
The ex boyfriend shot at is Rasheem Lord, who is also a Queens corrections officer, while Keisha Brown , age 47 who committed suicide after had arrived at the Queensboro Correctional Facility on Van Dam Street in Long Island City for work when Brown demanded, “You are going to talk to me,” sources said.
Brown fired her service revolver at Lord but the bullets missed Lord who took off running, causing Brown, who was in uniform, to give chase while still firing shots, witnesses and sources recallled.
“She started shooting and one of those bullets hit my car,” said witness Rafael Macias, 40, who’s Nissan SUV took a bullet while he was driving on 31st Place on his way to work at NYU Langone Medical Center in Manhattan. “She was shooting at him the same time she was running.”
Another witness, Darison Abreu, 27, who was in Macias’ car said of Brown, “She looked determined…[It] was like she wanted this guy dead.”
“She fired a lot…she emptied out that clip,” Abreu said.
Surveillance video from Sensible Edibles Baking Co. on 31st Place shows Lord running down the street wearing a gray sweatshirt and a Yankee hat and the shooter chasing him, holding what appeared to be a gun, eventually Lord escaped unharmed into the prison complex, sources said.
Brown then riddled Lord’s parked car with bullets before she fired a single round into her chest, killing herself, according to sources.
“As soon as I parked I got out to check myself to see if I got hit, and then I heard three shots more and I heard somebody scream, ‘Call an ambulance! She shot herself,’” Macias said.
Abreu said he ran up to Brown while she laid bloodied on the ground.
“She was on her back. [She] was face up,” Abreu said. “She wasn’t saying anything.” Brown died at the scene, police said.
