A high school student was shot in the head at a Brooklyn party Saturday night, police said.
Iquan Williams, 16, was at a party on Prospect Place in Brownsville before police responded to a 911 call of a male shot around 10:30 p.m.
Police said Williams was found with a gunshot wound to the head in front of the apartment buikding. He was declared dead at the scene.
Officials are still looking into what led up to the shooting, police said. It’s unclear if Williams was hit during or outside of the party and if he was the intended target.
The shooter remained at large Sunday morning, police said.
Williams is the youngest person to be killed in the city so far this year, according to police records.
