BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — A 17-year-old boy was gunned down in Brooklyn early Saturday morning, and cops were investigating the death, police said.

Kamau Chandler, of Coney Island, was shot in the head and chest at around 4:05 a.m., police said, in front of 1198 Fulton Street near Bedford Avenue.

Police said Chandler and several friends were walking down Fulton Street when two men approached them from behind. An argument sparked between the two men and Chandler's group, and that's when one of the men pulled a out gun and shot Chandler.

He was rushed to Interfaith Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Police released a video late Saturday of two men they say are suspects in the murder, who were caught on a surveillance camera running from the scene.

Police said the first man was thin with short hair, in his twenties, and wearing an orange T-shirt with a dark stripe on it. The second suspect was described as being about 6-foot-2, and wearing a navy-colored cut-off hoodie, police said.  

Anyone with information in regards to this homicide is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477), or to visit nypdcrimestoppers.com or text tips to 274637(CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
