Neighbor Shoots NYC Dad and Stepson During Heated Noise Dispute

November 1, 2023

Neighbor shoots dead father and son in Brooklyn NY



Chilling video shows the moment a crazed neighbor executed a father and his stepson in cold blood in a Brooklyn apartment hallway during an argument over noise Sunday night.

The distressing footage obtained by The Post opens with a man dressed in all black pacing angrily outside his upstairs neighbors’ apartment on the fourth floor of 1418 Brooklyn Ave. in a well-known East Flatbush housing complex where stars Barbra Streisand and Michael K. Williams grew up.

A woman emerges from the apartment and exchanges words with the neighbor, who was identified by cops Tuesday as Jason Pass, 47.

A short time later, the woman is joined by her son, identified by cops as 27-year-old Chinwai Mode. The video has no audio, so it is unknown what was said during the exchange.

Moments later, Mode’s stepfather, 47-year-old school bus driver Bladimy Mathurin, marches out of the apartment brandishing a pair of scissors and angrily confronts the neighbor, the video shows.










His wife tries to drag him away, but the bodybuilder dad of four pushes her back.

At that moment, the verbal dispute takes a harrowing turn when the neighbor in black pulls out a handgun and aims it at Mathurin.

Mathurin spots the gun but waves it off. He turns around and begins walking toward his apartment, at which point the neighbor opens fire and strikes Mathurin, who falls to the floor.

Mode, who was also in the hallway, tries to get away from the gunman, but the neighbor fires multiple shots at him, including at least twice after he had collapsed in a pool of his own blood next to a staircase.









The suspect then returns to Mathurin, who is still alive and struggling to get up, and shoots him execution-style on his own doorstep. The Post has redacted portions of the video because of their graphic nature.

Having killed the two men, the gunman calmly observes the grisly scene before stepping into an elevator, which he takes down to the street and flees.

Nine .45-caliber shell casings and five bullet fragments were recovered from the hallway, sources said.

The sprawling 59-building apartment complex where Sunday’s shooting took place was built in the 1940s and was known at the time as Vanderveer Estates before being renamed Flatbush Gardens decades later.

Screen and stage icon Streisand lived in the low-income housing development as a teenager, long before the massive complex fell into disrepair and became plagued by crime.

Williams, who famously portrayed Omar Little on the HBO prestige drama “The Wire,” also called Flatbush Garden home for many years before moving out while filming the second season of the hit television series. He died at age 54 from a drug overdose of fentanyl-laced heroin in September 2021.

Paramedics who were called to the apartment building in Sunday’s bloodbath found Mathurin and Mode dead from multiple gunshot wounds to the head and torso, police said.

Mathurin’s inconsolable wife, Marie Delille, said her family, originally from Haiti, has been locked in a years-long dispute about noise with their downstairs neighbor.

NYPD Chief of Detectives Joseph Kenny said Tuesday that there were six previous 311 calls about noise complaints placed from the alleged shooter’s apartment.

“Basically [about] people walking,” Kenny said. “We come to find that the apartment upstairs didn’t have carpeting. It was a wood floor. So a lot of noise. People walking back and forth generated these calls.

“We have video, obviously of the incident, and I’m sure you’ve seen it,” the chief said. “It’s gone viral, where the perpetrator confronts the family members.”

Kenny said Pass had one prior bust for robbery in 1992. The alleged shooter worked as a state correction officer at Sing Sing Correctional Facility in Ossining from September 2004 to June 2005 when he was fired, a Department of Corrections and Community Supervision spokesperson said.

On Sunday night, the fed-up resident began banging on his ceiling over the loud sounds supposedly coming from Mathurn and Delille’s apartment.

Mathurin banged back, prompting the suspect to rush upstairs and kick the family’s front door, according to Delille.










“This man hates us with every bone in his body,” the wife told CBS New York of the neighbor.

As seen in the surveillance video and confirmed by the police, Mathurin argued with the neighbor and seemingly threatened him with a pair of scissors, before the suspect opened fire.

But Delille insisted that her husband was not at fault.

“My husband had no gun, no weapon. Why did you bring a gun to shoot my family? Why would you bring a gun to tear my family apart? Why? Why?” Delille said, according to the station ABC 7 NY.

The woman said the neighbor fired nine shots at her husband and son in front of her 10-year-old daughter.

Mathurin worked two jobs, driving a school bus by day and working as an Uber driver on the side, to provide for their four children, Delille told the outlet Gothamist. In his spare time, he enjoyed bodybuilding.

“He’s a muscular guy. He looks intimidating, but that’s not who he is. He is a wonderful guy,” family friend Mickael Louis said.
