NEW YORK (WABC) -- Three homicides were reported across New York City on Thanksgiving night in Brooklyn and Harlem.

A 69-year-old woman was fatally shot outside her apartment building in the Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn.

Angelina Renita Parker was found shot in the neck outside the city run Brevoort Houses on Bainbridge Street just before 11 p.m. on Thursday.

She was pronounced dead at Brookdale University Hospital.

The NYCHA development is where the retired teacher was raised, friends say, and where she suddenly and violently died.

The grandmother had celebrated Thanksgiving with her family. She was found outside her building and a trail of blood led back to her apartment on the second floor.

A large group of her friends and family gathered outside Friday.

"This is crazy, you just don't do that to people," said the victim's niece Nickey.

Detectives did not reveal a motive for the murder or say if they have identified a suspect.

In another deadly shooting about an hour later, a 48-year-old man was shot and killed during a dispute outside a deli in Harlem just before midnight.

The shooting happened in front of 667 Macombs Pl. and the victim was found with a gunshot wound to the back.

The victim's identity has not yet been released.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.

And in another homicide the same night, an unidentified victim was found with a stab wound to the torso just after 7 p.m. at the intersection of Belmont and Alabama avenues in Brooklyn.

The man was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

No arrests have been made and the investigation continues.
