Recent Shootout in Bronx Leads to One Dead, Three Injured

According to authorities, three individuals were wounded, and one man was killed on Tuesday night after persons on scooters reportedly opened fire on them at a Bronx street intersection.

Ten shots were fired into the bustling intersection by the gunmen perched on scooters, according to the police.

According to reports, the shooting was premeditated.

Authorities have reported that three men, one in his twenties, one in his thirties, and one in his forties, were shot and left with non-mortal wounds. Miguel Doleo, a 29-year-old, was fatally shot in the chest, according to the police.

According to NYPD Assistant Chief Benjamin Gurley, at a media conference, four individuals, including two males on scooters, approached a group of four men standing at a corner in the Bronx near the junction of Mount Eden and Townsend Ave.

Gurley said that the tail gunners on the two scooters discharged ten shots into the group.

Gurley said three of the guys on the corner were shot in the leg. The one hit in the chest succumbed to his injuries at a nearby hospital.

The suspects riding scooters took flight after the incident, heading northward.

According to Gurley, one man is in jail, but the police are “unsure” if he is connected to the event.

The hunt for more suspects will continue, according to the police.

During a press conference on Tuesday night, a deputy commissioner said that the event had prompted the return of community response teams addressing offenses involving dirt bikes, ATVs, and illicit scooters.

Lucette Clermont, a mother from the Bronx who lives in the Mount Eden area, expressed concern about the dangers of just strolling down the street with her 4-year-old son.

Clermont said she is filled with fear. She said people are more scared of scooters than cars.

According to Clermont, the municipality postponed Saturday’s outdoor street festival because of the incident. The celebrations will now take place indoors.
