Simon, 35, was gunned down on the street Saturday near her Crown Heights home, caught in the crossfire of a raging gun battle.

Her 9-year-old son, Kieron McEwen, sitting in the family's SUV waiting for his mother to drive him to swimming lessons, heard the fatal fusillade.

"She took a deep breath and looked up at me," said a neighbor, who rushed to Simon's side. "She looked up again and then stopped breathing."
