A 21-year-old man was shot dead and his teen passenger wounded as they sat in a BMW late Sunday, police said.
Sergio Jimenez and the 18-year-old woman were inside the Beemer at East 171st Street and Townsend Avenue in Mount Eden around 10:15 p.m. Sunday when cops believe two suspects approached from the passenger side and opened fire, authorities said.
Jimenez was shot in the head, and the teen, who was in the passenger seat, was struck in the hand and back, cops said.
Responding cops found Jimenez slumped over in the driver’s seat, police said.
They thought the BMW was in park, so they pulled him out — but it turned out his foot had just been on the brake, police sources said.
The BMW rolled forward, ran over Jimenez’s arm and also hit a police car, the sources said.
“So he wasn’t just shot,” the source said. “He was run over.”
EMS workers brought Jimenez to BronxCare Health System, where he was pronounced dead.
The woman in the car — whose relationship to Jimenez was not immediately clear — went to the same hospital, where she was listed in stable condition.
No arrests had been made by Monday morning.
The motive for the shooting remains unclear.
