Police in the Bronx are looking for the gunman who shot a man dead at an intersection Monday night.
The unidentified, 29-year-old man was fatally shot at the corner of Van Nest Avenue and Melville Street in van Nest at about 9:08 p.m. on Dec. 26.
Officers from the 49th Precinct located the victim with a bullet wound to his chest. EMS rushed him to Jacobi Hospital, where he died a short time later; police have not yet released his identity, pending family notification.
According to law enforcement sources, the victim was known to the department, as he was previously injured in a non-fatal shooting back in 2019.
The motive for his murder remains unknown and under investigation, authorities said. Police provided a preliminary description of the shooter, who was described as a Black man wearing black clothing and a red bandana.
No arrests have been made in the ongoing probe, police said.
