Brooklyn, NY - Brighton Beach Man Arrested For March Ocean Parkway Murder Of Jewish Man
New York - A 31 year old Brooklyn resident was arrested today for a previously unsolved murder that took place on Ocean Parkway two and a half months ago.
Jefferey McCrae was charged with murder in the second degree and criminal possession of a weapon, fourth degree, in the murder of 29 year old Natik Nisimov.
Nisimov was found unconscious by police in front of 1663 Ocean Parkway with a gunshot wound to his chest on the morning of March 24th. He was pronounced dead on arrival at Coney Island Hospital.
According to his Facebook page, Nisimiv was originally from Azerbaijan and was the owner of Natik’s Unisex Salon in Kensington.
The New York Post reported that Nisimov sued New York City and several police officers in 2014 for false arrest, use of excessive force and malicious prosecution, saying that police officers manhandled him and denied him medical treatment after being arrested earlier the same year. Nisimov settled with the city for an undisclosed amount of money just weeks before his death.
Family members established a weekly Torah study class in Nisimov’s memory three weeks after his death at the Gorsky-Kavkazi Synagogue and Center on Ocean Parkway.
