Brooklyn Man Shoots Intruder, Ends Up In Cuffs

According to authorities, Melvin Richie, 16, and an accomplice pushed their way into Ricardo Cameron’s first-floor apartment on Church Ave. and E. 91st St. in East Flatbush on Sunday. Although one of them had a pistol, Cameron, 37, got his own gun and shot Richie in the head.

Although investigators believe that Cameron acted in defense, he had two guns--one was licensed and the other was not. When officers came over, he also had a marijuana stash he tried to hide along with his unlicensed gun.

Cops found the bag in the building's laundry room. Cameron now faces charges of gun and marijuana possession and tampering with evidence. Cameron was arraigned in Brooklyn Criminal Court Tuesday, where his bail was set at $10,000 bond or $5,000 cash.
