A fight sparked when a teen insulted another girl’s hair weave led to a Brooklyn man’s tragic murder, prosecutors said Thursday.

Denzel Holder, 21, shot and killed Shawn Williams, 19, after Holder’s gal pal made fun of Williams’ girlfriend’s hair.

“Shawn Williams was shot in the back because two groups of young women were fighting over a hair weave,” prosecutor Edward Purce said in his opening of the Brooklyn Supreme Court murder trial.

The violence was sparked when a group of teen girls, including Holder’s girlfriend, Shatasia Meggett, insulted Williams’ girlfriend, Sheniqua Cunningham, as her and Williams walked down a Crown Heights street in August 2011, prosecutors said.
