NYPD officers, responding to the scene of a robbery at a Brooklyn deli early Sunday, shot and killed an 18-year old robbery suspect in possession of a replica handgun.
Sergio Reyes allegedly entered a deli and stole two six-packs of beer before leaving without paying. He again entered the store shortly thereafter and stole two additional six-packs of beer.
This time he pointed a gun at the store clerk before fleeing out of the business.
Outside, he was confronted by NYPD officers who pursued Reyes on foot.
After a brief chase, officers shot and killed Reyes, who was armed with a pellet gun that resembled a genuine handgun.
