NY Daily News, 3/4/08
A Brooklyn man was shot to death Monday just steps from his two ultrapricey cars - the status symbols that may have led to his killing, cops and neighbors said.
Reggie Everett, 29, was well-known in Crown Heights for the two sparkling cars - a new BMW coupe and a Cadillac Escalade - he kept in the driveway of a vacant home, neighbors said.
But his perceived status as a highroller might have drawn his attackers, police sources said.
"Unemployed criminal with some very, very nice cars," was how one police source described Everett. "He tempted his neighbors and paid the price."
Everett was shot once in the 10:15 a.m. dispute with two suspects on St. Marks Place. He was taken to an area hospital, where he died, authorities said.
No arrests were made, cops said.
