Gunned down

A 23-year-old felon was gunned down execution style on May 22 — a month after he was arrested for brazenly plunging an ice pick into an opponent’s chest outside Brooklyn Criminal Court.

Police from the 70th Precinct were called to a courtyard on Ocean Avenue between Church Avenue and Albemarle Road at 1:44 p.m. and found 23-year-old Dymitre Thelismond sprawled out on the street. Paramedics declared him dead at the scene — a victim of a single gunshot wound to the head.

Police sources said that it was still unclear if the slaying has any connection to the criminal charges hanging over Thelismond’s head before his death.

According to the New York Post, Thelismond, no stranger to the criminal justice system, was facing assault charges for attacking a man with an ice pick back in April. His victim survived, according to published reports.
