The son of a New York City police detective has been shot to death outside a public housing project in Brooklyn. Sean Hayes was shot Monday near a playground at the Marcy Houses. He was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

The victim was the son of Detective Sean Lawrence, who lives in Queens.

A distraught Lawrence told the Daily News that his family was "trying to hold it together."

The victim lived with his mother a block from where he was shot.

A neighbor, Jamilla Daise, described the victim as the "pride and joy" of his mother, Michelle Hayes.

Investigators had no suspects or motive in the killing.
