A Brooklyn handyman died early Monday after being shot in the head while riding his bike a block from his house, cops said.

Kareem Russell, 37, was found lying in front of a building on Pacific St. near Schenectady Ave. in Crown Heights a little after 5 a.m., police said.

He was shot once in the left arm and once on the left side of his head.

Russell was taken to Kings County Hospital where he died a short time later.

No arrests have been made.

Relatives said Russell was the father of an 8-year-old boy and 5-year-old girl and worked as a handyman, doing plumbing and electrical work for a living.

"He was a family guy," said his 25-year-old sister, who would not give her name. "He was a good person. He was very kind. He had a good sense of humor."

Russell's aunt, who also would not give her name, said she suspected he was just in the wrong place at the the wrong time.

"He was like my son," she said. "He was a good kid. He would do anything for anybody."

"I don't know what happened. I wish it didn't," she said.
