Cops Ask Dying Gangbanger To ID His Killer, He Tells Them 'F--k You'

A known Crips gang member refused to tell police who shot him before he died on Tuesday night.

Brooklyn, NY – A friend of slain rapper Nipsey Hussle was gunned down on Tuesday but told cops “f--k you” when they asked him who shot him.

The incident, one of five fatal shootings in the city in less than 24 hours, occurred at about 9:20 p.m. on Aug. 20 in the Brownsville neighborhood, the New York Post reported.

Police said 28-year-old Arsenio Gravesande was shot in the hip during a confrontation at Union Street and Sutter Avenue.

Gravesande, a known member of the Crip gang with a history of 43 arrests and resisting, was asked for his name and who attacked him, the New York Post reported.

“F--k you, son,” the gangbanger hissed at the officer in response, shortly before he was loaded into an ambulance to be transported to Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center.

Police didn’t think that Gravesande had a mortal wound at the scene and planned to question him later on at the hospital, the New York Post reported.

“Sometimes, they cool down and talk to us,” a New York Police Department (NYPD) source said. “They have a change of heart and ID the shooter.”

Doctors took Gravesande into emergency surgery when he arrived at the hospital and discovered the bullet had struck multiple arteries, the New York Post reported.

He died in surgery.

Gravesande’s cousin, 35-year-old Bethany Samuels, said that he knew he was dying on the way to the hospital, the New York Post reported.

“I went in there [the ambulance] with him,” Samuels said. “He was just moving, trying to grab this, grab that. It’s like his spirit wasn’t at peace. He was saying he couldn’t breathe, [that] he was dead.”

Gravesande was the third person shot out of five fatalities in Brooklyn and Queens in 22 hours, according to the New York Post.

Almost got a twofer. I’m sure the killer will catch his own bullet soon.
