Daquan Carter, 28, of Brooklyn was hit with charges of murder and criminal possession of a weapon Wednesday for allegedly shooting dead 26-year-old Courtney “Aggy” Tingle in Prospect Heights when Tingle walked outside of a baby shower he was attending on March 23, authorities said.
Tingle, a father who police say was affiliated with the Team Bang Out street gang and went by the alias “Young Courtney,” had just left the celebration at a Washington Avenue building when he was shot during a dispute.
He was rushed to NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital with gunshot wounds to his torso, but was pronounced dead.
In the days after Tingle’s death, Lil’ Kim — whose real name is Kimberly Jones — posted on social media about his killing.
“It breaks my heart to have to send out this special RIP to my little cousin Aggy who was shot and killed,” the Brooklyn-born star tweeted at the time.
“At times you were so quiet but as soon as you started speaking everyone in the room knew that you were a real riot,” the “Magic Stick” rapper wrote. “You were a halfway comedian but I used to tell you that you need go away to college and get a basketball scholarship.”
Lil’ Kim added: “You had so much potential. We your family will greatly miss you and we will always keep our lighters up for you.”
Another cousin of Tingle’s, Sheffield Clarke, called Tingle “a good young man” who “was working toward getting himself straight” in an interview with The Post on Thursday.
“Everything was on the way up before this happened,” said Clarke, adding that Tingle “was very respectful” and “everybody loved him.”
Clarke, who confirmed that Tingle was cousins with Lil’ Kim, praised the NYPD for the arrest of Tingle’s alleged killer.
“I’m glad he’s in custody, finally,” Clarke said. “[The NYPD] did a good job. They stayed on it and got it done.”
“I have to give them the credit they deserve,” he said.
Meanwhile, Carter was arraigned in Brooklyn Criminal Court Thursday and ordered held without bail.
He mouthed, “I love you,” to a woman — one of about a dozen apparent supporters in the courtroom — before he was escorted out.
Carter’s Legal Aid Society attorney Peter Davis declined to comment.
The suspect is due back in court on Dec. 10.
