Police in Brooklyn are looking for two men they say shot and killed a teenager.

It happened early Saturday morning on Fulton Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

Police released surveillance footage of the two suspects running from the scene.

They're accused of shooting and killing 17-year old Kamau Chandler.

Police say the victim and his friends were walking on the street when they were approached from behind by the two suspects.

He was pronounced dead on arrival at Interfaith Hospital.

The suspects are described as a black male in his 20's, thin with short hair, wearing an orange shirt with a dark strip on it, and a black male, 6'2" tall wearing a navy blue cut off hoody.
