A pre-Fourth of July that started with a barbecue and drinks with friends ended with a woman watching in horror as the father of her infant son was gunned down on a Brooklyn street in a road-rage incident with an off-duty NYPD cop.
“He was grunting, making noises, seen blood all over, he was leaking out just leaking,” Zaquanna Albert told a jury Wednesday about the last moments of Delrawn Small’s life.
She testified that she frantically told her 14-year-old daughter to call 911 before running to her boyfriend’s side while his killer — NYPD officer Wayne Isaacs — walked away.
“I shouted … ‘Why did you shoot? Why did you shoot?’” Albert said, while she tried to comfort Small as he lay face down and bleeding on the concrete near Bradford St. and Atlantic Ave. just after midnight on July 4, 2016.
On a recording of a 911 call played for jurors in the Brooklyn Supreme Court case, Albert is screaming in the background.
“Oh my God! What did you do?!” she cried.
Isaacs, 38, also called 911.
“I’m a police officer and I was attacked,” he said.
He did not mention to the dispatcher that he fired his weapon or that someone was shot, but did request an ambulance twice.
Albert and Small were unaware that Isaacs, who had finished a shift at the 79th Precinct just 30 minutes earlier, was a cop.
