According to a neighbor, Alyssa Rodriguez and McLeod went to the door of another neighbor, 25-year-old Jean Pierre Pacheco and accused him of owing them money at 4:15 am
“I told them, ‘Calm down, stop arguing because people are sleeping,’ ” she said. “(McLeod) said somebody took his money. I said, ‘OK, let it go.’ Then he ran down the stairs.”
McLeod came back up again and continued the bickering with Alyssa Rodriguez telling him to let it go while crying, then there were gunshots and Alyssa was found face down with a chest wound. They tried reviving her before medics rushed her to Coney Island Hospital, but she was already dead.
