NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - An MTA train conductor and mother of six on her way home from work was found dead with a gunshot wound to her head in East New York, Brooklyn, late Monday night. Emergency crews arrived at about 11:40 p.m. and pronounced her dead at the scene, said police.
Jacqueline Dicks, 41, was off-duty from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority when she was gunned down less than a block from her home. She was wearing her uniform at the time of her death.
Police sources told Fox 5's Lisa Evers that this was not a robbery gone badly and that detectives are leaning away from the theory that it was a random attack.
NYPD detectives worked the scene throughout the night and all day long. Police are hoping that surveillance cameras from an industrial building across the street will provide them with unmistakable clues.
An MTA spokesperson declined to comment.
The NYPD is searching for at least three suspects who were seen running from 1010 Alton St. following the shooting.
Dicks leaves behind six children ranging in ages 4 to 24. Her brother told Fox 5 News that Dicks was beloved by her family.
