Bronx Father Shot Dead in Front of Son

NY DAILY NEWS- A gunman on a bicycle shot a Bronx dad dead in front of his teenage son and wounded another man Tuesday, after the father tried to stand up for his boy during a gang-related fight, police sources said.

Pedro Almonte-Sanchez, 39, was getting into his car, where his 15-year-old son, Justin Sanchez, was already waiting, near their Strong St. home in University Heights just before 6 p.m. when a group of young men on bikes confronted him, sources said.

One of the bike riders pulled out a handgun and opened fire, hitting the dad several times, including in the head. A second victim, Fernando Castillo, 25, suffered a graze wound to his head, police sources said.

The victim’s son is a member of the Patria street gang, according to the sources. He recently transferred to a new high school — and trouble followed.
