Shortly before 3 a.m., less than a mile away in the Bronx, a 55-year-old man was shot in the chest and right leg at the corner of DeReimer Avenue and Boston Road. EMS responded to the scene and transported the victim to Jacobi Medical where he was pronounced dead, police said. The investigation is ongoing.
Police also reported a man shot on the right side of his chest on Ninth Avenue and West 203rd St. in Washington Heights around 1:40 a.m. The wounded man was taken to Lincoln Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, cops said. The NYPD said the suspect fled in a gray vehicle and it’s not known whether the victim was the intended target.
