A 16-year-old boy was killed when a gunman shot him in the head in broad daylight as the teen walked with his girlfriend on a tree-lined Brooklyn block Wednesday, police said.

The victim was walking with his sweetheart on Macon St. near Stuyvesant Ave. in Bedford-Stuyvesant when he got into a war of words with the gunman who opened fire around 2 p.m., according to authorities.

Medics rushed the mortally wounded teen, who was not immediately identified, to Kings County Hospital where he died.

The suspected shooter was taken into custody a short time later and is expected to be charged, cops said.
