Isaac, 33, a father to a 6-year-old girl and 3-year-old boy, was walking through the Lillian Wald Houses at 20 Avenue D about 4:30 p.m. when he got into a dispute with someone who then shot him four times in the chest, according to the NYPD.
"He dropped his baby off and this happened a half-hour after. He gave his son a kiss and a hug. We told him to be careful," said the childrens' mother, Veronica Echevarria, 26.
"I tried calling him after, but someone else picked up the phone. He was gone," Echevarria added.
No one was immediately arrested in connection to his death and did not have any description of the suspect, an NYPD spokeswoman said.
