The pellet-gun toting teen killed by cops after a Brooklyn robbery Sunday was a college-bound kid with dreams of being a social worker, his family said.

Police said he died over a few bottles of beer.

Surveillance pictures show Sergio Reyes pointing what turned out to be a pellet gun at a Bushwick bodega clerk just after midnight before raising the same weapon at police just moments later, officials said.

Reyes, 18, was shot several times outside the Garden Deli & Grill at Irving Ave. and Starr St. across from Maria Hernandez Park.
