Was elderly woman's death a gang hit?
“I have no words for the person who did this,” [Benny] Webb said, referring to Leta Webb, a grandmother and parent to several biological as well as adoptive children.
The 70-year-old was gunned down at 1:40 a.m. Tuesday after answering the door to her family’s home at 119th Avenue in Jamaica, Queens.
One member of the NYPD informed PIX11 News that this particular vicinity of 119th Avenue and 153rd Street is not one that required much focus by the patrol lights of the NYPD. However, a few yards from where Webb was killed, the challenges of the neighborhood are evident.
Gang signs have been covered up on one wall. Clear tags show through on others signaling the potential gang component expressed by the family.
