Man gunned down in Brooklyn just weeks after his younger brother’s murder: ‘We can’t believe it’s our turn again’

The crack of gunshots Wednesday morning brought fresh grief for a family cursed by violence, killing the father of two daughters just weeks after his younger brother was cut down in a gang feud.

Daishawn Benjamin, 33, was fatally shot in front of a Brownsville deli about 8:30 a.m., a few yards from where his brother, Kizer Williams, was slain Oct. 3.

Benjamin was standing outside Ziggy Deli Grocery on the corner of Belmont Ave. and Mother Gaston Blvd., not far from the Seth Low Houses, when a killer stepped out of a dark sedan and started shooting, cops said. The gunman let loose several shots, got back into his car and sped off, leaving Benjamin shot in the chest and arm.
