NYC: 9-year-old placed ‘heartbreaking’ 911 call amid Brooklyn murder-suicide: cops

A 9-year-old Brooklyn girl whose mom and two half-sisters were fatally gunned down by her dad hid in a closet and wept to a 911 operator, “Daddy was coming over for my birthday — and he shot people.’’

The stricken child’s “heartbreaking’’ emergency call was placed amid the bloodshed that occurred during the little girl’s birthday party in Brownsville on Monday night, NYPD Chief of Detectives James Essig told reporters Tuesday.

“She was just calling 911, you know, if you can imagine, it’s horrific, the 911, saying, ‘Daddy was coming over for my birthday, and he shot people,’ ” Essig said of the little girl.

“And she was weeping and crying [that she] ‘didn’t have presents.’ It was heartbreaking to hear that. We found her hidden in a closet,’’ he said.

Cops say the girl’s father, Joseph McCrimons, 46, killed her 45-year-old mother, Rasheeda Barzey, and Barzey’s two other daughters, Chloe Spears, 16, and Solei Spears, 20.

McCrimons, who was not the older girls’ dad, then fatally shot himself in the head.
