5 People Wounded in Shootings in the Bronx
By David Greene
Five people were recovering after a pair of unrelated shootings in the Concourse Village section and another on the Kingsbridge / Marble Hill border in five hours of bloodshed.
According to police, 3 victims were shot in or near the East 166 Deli Grocery, located at 292 East 166 Street and College Avenue, at just before 4 p.m. on June 23.
Police were looking for the suspect, described as a “short male black,” wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.
Police believe the suspect sped away on a racing bicycle one block, before ditching the bike in front of a laundromat on Findlay Avenue.
Police believe the suspect then jumped into a waiting blue BMW with four or five others already in the vehicle.
EMS reported a 17-year-old male suffered a gunshot wound to the leg, a 26-year-old woman was hit in the right knee and a 26-year-old man suffered a graze wound to the left arm.
Police believe none of the victims were the intended targets and all the victims are expected to recover.
At just before 9 p.m., police from the 50th Precinct were called to the Dunkin’ Donuts at Broadway and West 230 Street, where two men were shot in front of the establishment.
Officials say both victims were shot in the leg and transported to St. Barnabas Hospital and were in stable condition.
