The parents of a 17-year-old boy stabbed to death in broad daylight near a pizza shop in Brooklyn Monday say their son was a respectful kid who wanted to be a prosecutor when he grew up. And they shared a gut-wrenching account of his final moments.
According to the story Rohan Burke’s say detectives told them, two young males and a girl walked up to their son on Avenue M and East 17th Street in Midwood around 4 p.m. One of the males stabbed Burke, then passed the knife to the girl, some of which played out on surveillance video, the parents said they were told.
A worker at a nearby pizza shop heard the screams and ran out to try to help Burke. He was the one who called 911.
It wasn’t clear how many times Burke was stabbed.
