Three more men lost their lives to gun violence in New York City during separate shootings in the Bronx and Queens between Monday night and Tuesday morning, police reported.
The most recent homicide occurred in the Mount Eden section of the Bronx, where a man was shot dead in front of an apartment building early Tuesday morning.
Cops said the 38-year-old male victim, who lived on East 213th Street in Norwood, was found shot multiple times in the torso near 1476 Walton Ave. at about 4:29 a.m. on Aug. 31. Officers from the 44th Precinct made the discovery while responding to a 911 call about a man unconscious at the location.
At this point in the ongoing investigation, police have yet to determine what led up to the shooting. Law enforcement sources also did not have an immediate description of the killer.
EMS rushed the victim to BronxCare Health System, where he was pronounced dead a short time later. Police have withheld his identity, pending family notification.
Hours earlier, in Queens, a 28-year-old man was found shot dead in the vestibule of the apartment building where he lived, authorities said.
According to police, Broderick Daniels, 28, took multiple gunshots to his torso inside the two-story residence on 184th Street between Henderson and 104th Avenues in Hollis at about 1 a.m. on Aug. 31.
Detectives have yet to ascertain why Daniels was shot, or provide a description of the shooter, sources familiar with the case said.
Officers from the 103rd Precinct found the wounded Daniels while responding to a 911 call about the shooting. EMS rushed him to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Meanwhile, back in the Bronx, detectives are also probing the deadly shooting of a Pennsylvania man in front of an apartment building on Monday night.
Police said Luis Giovanni Colon, 26, of Allentown was shot multiple times in the torso in front of 1693 Vyse Ave. in Charlotte Gardens at about 9:15 p.m. on Aug. 30.
Law enforcement sources said the shooter, described only as a Black man, walked up to Colon and pulled the trigger. Following the shooting, the suspect entered a red Toyota SUV that fled the scene.
It’s unclear, at this point in the ongoing investigation, as to what led up to the deadly gunfire.
Officers from the 42nd Precinct discovered the mortally wounded man while responding to a 911 call at the location. EMS rushed Colon to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
So far, no arrests have been made in either of the three incidents.
