As New York’s Finest mourned a fellow officer killed in the line of duty in Harlem on Friday night, they responded to yet another deadly shooting in the Bronx early Saturday morning.

Police said a 33-year-old man was gunned down near a warehouse at 805 East 139th St. in the South Bronx at about 6 a.m. on Jan. 22.

Officers from the 40th Precinct, in responding to a 911 call about the shooting, found the unidentified victim with multiple gunshot wounds to his torso and legs.

EMS rushed the man to Lincoln Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later. Police have withheld the man’s identity, pending family notification.

No arrests have been made, thus far, in the ongoing investigation, police said.
