A cold-hearted goon murdered a man — execution style — on a Canarsie sidewalk in the pre-dawn hours on Wednesday, according to police.

The body of Dennis Hamer, 18, was found sprawled across the pavement beside Flatlands Fourth Street near E. 108th Street at 6:15 am, bleeding from a single gunshot wound to his head.

A single bullet casing was found at the scene, on the sidewalk not far from Hamer’s lifeless feet, sources at the scene confirmed.

Hamer’s record included a string of marijuana possession charges and a recent, unresolved attempted burglary charge from earlier this month, according to the district attorney’s office.

Reach reporter Colin Mixson at or by calling (718) 260-4514.

I am deeply saddened by this. He was my son's friend. No parent should have to bury their child. I hope the conscience of the person or persons responsible for taking Dennis from us, drives them to a confession....This is a case where the death penalty need be in New York. Whoever you are that did this, YOU ARE NOTHING BUT A COWARD. I am so angry right now.

Anya from Midwood says:
I find it absolutely disgusting that your newspaper printed a picture of a young man's dead body. This is absolutely shameful and obviously designed to shock your readers. You succeeded. I am shocked at your lack of moral sensitivity and complete lack of journalistic standards and though I was a weekly reader of your newspaper, I will not be a reader any longer. Additionally, I will be sharing this information with others and encouraging them to discontinue their support for your various publications. I hope you have apologized to the family of this young man for your inexcusable lack of taste.

Stop acting like he was a good kid he was wild and out of control it was only a matter of time before he ran into the right one. And look at the end result dead body posted publicly for the world to see. It should be a lesson to all the young wanna be "gangsters" don't sleep on the streets. When you doing to much you never know who radar you under. Nobody is untouchable.
