A man was fatally shot in the head after an argument on a Brooklyn street Thursday, police and family said.

Cops found Jamal Simms, 29, sprawled on the ground at the corner of St. Marks Ave. and New York Ave. in Crown Heights at about 7:20 p.m.

Simms was declared dead at the scene, said police.

Family of the fatally shot man were distraught at the grisly scene Thursday night.

“They killed my baby. He was my only child,” Simms’s mother, Rashann Washington, said. “God doesn’t give you more than you can handle, but I can’t bear this.”
