NYPD is on the lookout for a Brooklyn man whose mother claims is armed with a BB gun and is looking to commit suicide by police shooting.

21-year-old Decatur Gooden was reported to police on Thursday after an argument with his mother led to him leaving the home with a BB gun in an effort to get police to open fire on him.

Gooden’s mother reports that the young man has a mental illness but that he is currently not using any medication.

The New York Daily News reports that police described Gooden as 5’4 and weighing 100 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie, blue jeans and white Jordan sneakers.

Police have asked anyone with information to call CrimeStoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
