According to Bronx police on Sunday, a 36-year-old in Bronx shot dead in the presence of his wife for flicking a cigarette near some men.
Curtis Holley took a bullet to the stomach shortly before 9 p.m. Saturday at East 165th Street and Prospect Avenue during a dispute with three men who took offense that he’d flicked his smoke their way, sources said.
“He flicked a cigarette,” a police source said. “It just happened to be in the direction of three individuals. He didn’t mean to do it.”
Holley — who was with his wife at the time — was taken to Lincoln Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
