Three shooters who shot four people in The Bronx on Tuesday night are being sought by police.
Just before six o'clock in the evening, three teens were among the victims who were shot outside The Bronx Gourmet Deli on East 180th Street in the West Farms neighborhood.
At the junction where one of those victims, a 62-year-old man, was caught in the crossfire and grazed by a gunshot, NYPD cops made their presence known on Wednesday.
The victim's cousin only consented to speak with the reporters in an anonymous manner without revealing his identity. The 62-year-old was one of four males who were shot, along with three younger men who were wounded in the legs: 14, 15, and 17.
The four victims were all transferred to hospitals close by.
Pastor Bienvenido Lavergne, a witness, claimed, "I observed the streets were shut as I was coming home in a cab with my cousin." Three males who started firing at the men from behind while wearing black hoodies are being sought by police.
Off-camera, a witness informed Eyewitness News reporter Darla Miles that they spotted the perpetrators approaching the roadway while concealing their faces.
One victim allegedly entered a deli to seek assistance and asked a passerby to dial 911. Lavergne observed that and reported "I saw a number of folks with a strange look on their faces. Everyone was inquiring as to what had occurred. And I noticed that the detectives were examining the cameras there."
Which of the victims may or may not have been targeted, targets are still under investigation by the NYPD.
