According to police, 26-year-old Hector Delgado was gunned down in broad daylight near the corner of East 123rd Street and Lexington Avenue just before 4:30 p.m. on April 11. Authorities arrived to find Delgado with a bullet wound to the head, laying in a pool of his own blood.

He was taken to Harlem Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
