Woman remembers moment her brother was shot dead in Brooklyn

The sister of a man who was shot in Brooklyn told the Post Sunday she was on the phone with the sibling when the fatal shots rang out.

Pashona Davy, 31, said she heard the shots that fatally injured her older brother Donovan Davy in East Flatbush as she spoke to her brother on the phone early Sunday morning.

“I heard gunshots — about three or four,” she told the Post of her recent call. “I didn’t hear anything after that. I said, ‘Donovan, Donovan.’ I kept saying it and he didn’t answer.”

Donovan, an employee of the Transportation Security Administration, was shot in the neck and right leg at approximately 12:22 a.m. at the corner of 35th Street and Church Avenue

The 45-year-old was taken to Kings County Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

Pashona said she decided to call her brother when it took him longer than expected to get to her mother’s house. But when she asked him where he was, he seemed beside himself.

“He said, ‘I’m walking straight like a headless chicken — I’m walking so super fast,'” she said. “I’m like, ‘Why are you doing this? Why don’t you get in a cab?’”

Pashona didn’t hear his reply. Moments later she heard the shots.

“I started to get really scared,” she said. “I heard sirens so I ran outside.”

She ran from her mother’s apartment and found her brother two blocks away, lying on the floor and bleeding.

“I ran to 35th place and saw him shaking on the floor,” said Pashona Davy.

She begged the paramedics on site to help her brother.

“I said, ‘Please resuscitate him, do CPR.’ They said, ‘We’re going to do our best,'” she told the Post. “I tried to run to him and they pulled me away. I was hysterical.”

The doctors could not save him.

Pashona Davy said her brother is well liked by many and avoids any confrontation.

Her sister Clova Davy, 40, said he was always there for people when they needed him.

“He was the one you could call and talk to if you had a problem and he stayed on the phone with you for hours,” she told the Post. “When you were feeling upset or down, he was the one who was always there for you. If you didn’t have any money, he was the one to help you.”

“He was very caring, loving — everything you could ask for in a brother,” she added.

Clova Davy said she was shocked someone wanted to kill him.

“Donovan wouldn’t get shot… He’s not someone you want to shoot,” she said. “He doesn’t bother anyone. Even if you hit him, he wouldn’t hit you back.”

Both women described their brother as a big brother, uncle and son.

“He’s one of my best friends,” Pashona Davy said of her murdered brother. “He’s one of my inspirations for who I am today. I could have been your basic stereotypical girl but he is such an educated man and he pushes me to be better and learn better.”

She said her brother – who has no children – has always helped with her children and all his nephews.

Donovan Davy found his calling at TSA where he had worked for 17 years.

“He [was] a hard worker,” said Pashona Davy. “He was with TSA for 17 years. He [was] very passionate about what he does [did].”

Clova Davy said her brother will retire in a few years and move to Atlanta.

“He planned to retire after 20 years, buy a house and start a family,” she said.

In tears, she tried to explain why her brother was killed.

“I don’t understand why anyone would want to do this to him,” Clova Davy said. “He just went to buy food.”
