Park Slope shooter snapped and felt ‘enough was enough,’ sister says


The woman charged with murdering her former girlfriend of nearly two decades on a Park Slope street snapped and felt “enough was enough” following a contentious relationship between the pair, the alleged shooter’s sister claimed Thursday. The caught-on-camera, execution-style shooting on Fourth Avenue and St. Marks Place on Wednesday was the result of suspect Latisha Bell “not taking it no more,” Bell’s sibling, who declined to be named, said. “She felt that she couldn’t take it no more and enough was enough,” the relative told reporters outside of Brooklyn Criminal Court following Bell’s virtual arraignment in which she was ordered held without bail. Prosecutors say that Bell ran up to 51-year-old victim Nichelle Thomas from behind and blasted Thomas one time in the back of the head at point-blank range before fleeing. Bell later surrendered herself to police at Brooklyn’s 78th Precinct station house and confessed, “I am turning myself in for the homicide. The gun is inside the bag,” a criminal complaint said. The suspect’s sister claimed that Bell is “mentally disabled.”
