A Brooklyn man who was shot to death by his own mother was whacked over weed, according to a neighbor.
Christopher Jenkins, 28, just wanted to relax when he arrived at the Crown Heights home he shared with his mother around 10 p.m on Oct. 12.
But Jenkins’ mother insisted he run back out and get her some booze and a bag of weed — and when he said, “No,” things quickly got heated, the neighbor said.
“He just came home from work and he said to his mom, ‘I don’t feel like going out. I just got home from work. Can you give me a break?’ Something like that,” according to the neighbor, who did not want to be named.
“I was here when it happened. I was asleep, they woke me up. They were arguing.”
The rattled neighbor said she heard the dispute on the other side of thin walls that offer little privacy.
She also heard the gunshots, and the commotion that followed.
“I heard two gunshots,” she said. “The arguing first, and then the shots. I was scared. I was scared. I closed my door. The police told me I had to come out of the building. My son came and got me and we were outside. It was cold. I had no socks on.”
Cops arrested Vanessa Jenkins, 44, and charged her with attempted murder, weapon possession and criminal use of a firearm. She is being held at Rikers Island on bail of either $500,000 cash or $1 million bond.
According to a criminal complaint, Vanessa Jenkins shot her son in the head after a “confrontation.”
Medics rushed Jenkins, a father of two, to Kings County Hospit
