A 17-year-old boy was arrested for murdering a 29-year old man in the Bronx last night, according to police.

The NYPD arrested Davacchie Cole after he allegedly shot Bronx man, Tory Barnes, in both the arm and leg outside of 116 West 176 St. in Morris Heights a week ago on Friday, Nov 15.

After cops in the 46th Precinct found Barnes bleeding out, he was rushed to nearby St. Barnabas Hospital where the man was pronounced dead, police say.

Barnes also lived just a few blocks south of the residential complex he was shot in front of, according to the NYPD.

While the NYPD has yet to determine a motive in the shooting, police sources did say the the area is “prone to narcotics.”

Cole was brought up on two murder charges, manslaughter, four robbery counts, two criminal weapon possession counts, and one criminal firearm charge as well.
