A Bushwick man was shot and killed Sunday night outside an apartment building just off of Maria Hernandez Park, a public park named for a community leader who devoted her life to ridding the neighborhood of violence and drugs.
Ivan Martinez, 29, took a gun shot wound to the head around 6 p.m. and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police. Martinez lived at 104 Troutman Street, about six blocks from 320 Suydam Street, where the shooting took place.
