Police say 16-year-old boy was shot to death on a Brooklyn street Saturday night.

Officials say they found Iquan Williams with a gunshot wound to the head in front of 1856 Prospect Place in Brownsville. Williams was unresponsive and declared dead on the scene by emergency responders.

The NYPD says an investigation into the shooting is ongoing.

Community leaders held a rally Sunday morning over Williams' death on the Brooklyn street where he was shot.

"We as a community can't let this be the norm for 2014," said Tony Herbert, a community leader, in a statement. "We have to stand together and be very clear in saying that this is not going to be another year of senseless gun violence where innocent lives will lost."
