The plow driver discovered Dickens’ lifeless body around 6:15 p.m. on E. 91st St. by Ave. B. The 19-year-old had been shot in the head once and in the body twice.

“At first I thought he got hit by the plow but then I realized he’d been shot. He was lying face-up in the middle of the street,” Jermaine Colthirst, a bus driver who watched the police investigate, told the New York Daily News.
