Raphael Ward, 16, was shot and killed Friday night after a group of people approached him, wanting his jacket.
Reports say that Ward was standing in front of the DeWitt Reformed Church as and when he was shot in the chest by an unidentified gunman. He then walked across the street to a convenience store where he told store workers that he was approached by people who wanted his jacket. The teen was wearing a Marmot winter parka that retails for approximately $600.
Ward was transported to Beth Israel Hospital where he was pronounced dead. NYPD have not issued an official motive in the shooting.
