Fatally Shot Thug Was Free On Failure To Identify

By Howard Schwach

Police say that an undercover team from the 101 Precinct spotted Smalls and another man walking on Beach Channel Drive and Beach 63 Street at 1:04 a.m. on January 5.

The police were looking for Smalls in connection with a November 2007 incident in which he allegedly threw away a gun and eluded police.

On January 5, Smalls reportedly tried to walk away from police once again. One of the undercover cops followed him to Beach 63 Street, where Smalls allegedly pulled a gun and pointed it at the cops. It is still unclear as to whether he actually fired a shot at the cops, but they responded, killing him.
