    The offer to James McCrae was stark and terrifying: Keep quiet, and you're $20,000 richer. Talk to the law, and you're dead.

    McCrae, fearing for his life, told Brooklyn prosecutors in April that he believed the threat was from a man who months earlier had shot him in the face - but was free on $25,000 bail.

    He sought protection from the district attorney's office. There are discrepancies between the word of authorities and that of McCrae's girlfriend on efforts to keep McCrae safe until he could testify against his alleged assailant.

    But there is no question about what happened on Sept. 10.

    About 1:45 a.m., McCrae, 36, a custodian, was shot in the mouth, arm and back after dropping off a male friend in Bushwick. Three hours later, he died at The Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center.
