17-year-old boy busted for murder of Brooklyn man

A 17-year-old boy is accused of the fatal shooting of a Brooklyn man outside a deli a block from the victim’s home, cops said Thursday.

Rennie Patterson was busted for the murder of John Barnes, a 32-year-old man slain Dec. 16, 2017, around the corner from his Crown Heights home.

Barnes was outside the Crown Deli Supermarket at the corner of Schenectady Ave. and St. John’s place around 1:40 a.m. when cops say Patterson and another suspect still on the loose shot him in the head.

Medics rushed Barnes to Kings County Hospital where he died.

The motive for his murder was not immediately clear.

Cops released photos of Patterson and his unidentified accomplice wearing a fur-lined hood in December in hopes the public could help identify the pair.

Patterson has four prior arrests, including 2015 charges for robbery and burglary, cops said.

The Dyker Heights teenager was charged with murder, police said.

His arraignment was pending in Brooklyn Criminal Court Friday.
