A teen accused of being involved in the videotaped March attack on a 15-year-old girl who was robbed of her Air Jordans was shot dead in Brooklyn on Tuesday, law enforcement sources said.

Tyquan Howard, 16, was shot about 1 p.m. in front of a building on St. Johns Place near Rochester Avenue and died hours later at Brookdale Hospital, police said.

It’s unclear what sparked the shooting and no arrests had been made as of early Wednesday, cops said.
