Beau kills ex-girlfriend, then shoots her lesbian lover in Brooklyn street

A man angry over what cops called a bisexual love triangle gunned down his ex-girlfriend and then shot her new lover on a Brooklyn street Wednesday.

Jeanette Martinez, 23, was getting ready to move out of the Boulevard Houses when her ex ran up and shot her twice in the head as she stood on the sidewalk near her car, friends and police sources said.

Martinez had filed an assault complaint against the gunman, who was not identified, just hours before the 1 p.m. incident, sources said.

"It was an execution, pure and simple. The woman didn't stand a chance," a police source said.

The gunman then chased Martinez's girlfriend of seven months, Keila Ocasio, 19, across five lanes of traffic on Linden Blvd. into an oncoming SUV.

As Ocasio lay on the ground, the gunman stood over her and pumped four shots into the young woman and then fled, police sources said.

Martinez died at the scene. Ocasio, who turns 20 tomorrow, was in critical condition Wednesday night at Brookdale University Hospital after undergoing surgery, police said.

Where Are The Black Gay Men?

Two weeks ago individuals and organizations across the nation marked National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. Judging by many of the articles, press releases and events commemorating the day, however, you might never guess that the highest percentage of new HIV infections in 2006 was among black gay men.

Why, even on a day dedicated to black AIDS awareness, do black gay men remain a footnote?

“It’s symptomatic of the problem we face of ridding our community of HIV in order to break the back of the epidemic,” said Ernest Hopkins, policy director of the Black Gay Advocacy Coalition. “The most heavily impacted population by percentages is black gay men. If you want to talk about this epidemic you have to start there, and then move very quickly to black women, or you’re not doing your job.”
