Brooklyn police: 19-year-old man, dog, fatally shot in home

BROOKLYN — The Brooklyn Police Department is investigating the shooting death of a 19-year-old man who appeared to be killed inside his home Friday evening.

It happened just after midnight in the 4700 block of Elizabeth Lane.

Police say a woman called 911 to report that her stepson and dog had been shot in her home. That’s where officers found Jordan Taylor, 19, with a gunshot wound to his chest.

Paramedics took Taylor to MetroHealth Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

On the 911 call released by authorities, the woman identified herself as Taylor’s stepmother. She then reported to the dispatcher that Taylor’s girlfriend was “hysterical,” and trying to perform chest compressions.

Officials say based on the investigation, the crime does not appear to be a random act.

Investigators from Ohio BCI are assisting Brooklyn police with the case. Further details were not immediately released.
