Detectives are looking for the suspect behind a deadly Bronx shooting on Sunday evening connected to a dispute at a baseball game being played in a local park.
Police said the homicide happened at about 7:43 p.m. on May 15 in the vicinity of Rogers Place and Dawson Street in Foxhurst, a few steps away from Bill Rainey Park.
Officers from the 41st Precinct, in responding to a 911 call, found Gabriel Ramirez Gomez, 27, of Melrose Avenue in Melrose, shot in the chest and victim. They also located a second shooting a victim, a 43-year-old woman who had been grazed in her right leg.
Based on a preliminary investigation and eyewitness information, police determined that Ramirez Gomez was involved in a dispute inside Rainey Park stemming from a baseball game that took place there at the time.
Moments later, authorities said, Ramirez Gomez pulled out a gun and fired it multiple times. He then hopped on a moped, operated by another individual, and fled out of the park.
That’s when an unidentified suspect pulled out a firearm and opened fire on Ramirez Gomez, fatally striking him, law enforcement sources said.
The woman grazed by a shot was not connected to the ball game dispute, police noted; she had been sitting on a nearby park bench when she was hit.
EMS rushed both victims to Lincoln Hospital, where Ramirez Gomez died a short time later. The woman was listed in stable condition there.
So far, no arrests have been made in the ongoing investigation, police said.
