Tyhreek Riley, was playing a thrill-seeking game when the 15-year-old tried to leap over an alleyway to an adjacent rooftop but missed and plunged four stories to his death, police sources said. Tyhreek was a 10th grade high school student at Murry Bergtraum High School. He was with a group of friends on the roof of 1153 President St. near Rogers Ave. in Crown Heights and the first of the group to try and jump the roof of the building next door. But sadly he could not clear the gap and fell to the alley between the two buildings.

Patrick Riley, 47, the young teen’s father, cried out “I want my son, my boy, my Tyhreek…What was he doing up there?” He rushed to the scene after the accident. A superintendent of one of the buildings found Tyhreek who had died upon impact in the alley. Neighbors could see his body from their windows.

A neighbor, Nicholas Brown, 31 said, “He fell right in front of my kitchen window…It looked like he hit his head on the walls all the way down.” Tyhreek’s mother Joyann Riley, 43, who is a nurse, said she was too distraught to visit the scene of her son’s death. “He was a very loving and very attentive. He had a brother and a sister that he dearly loved…He was a good boy.” Police sources said they received many calls recently of teens jumping from roof to roof.
