BRONX - Cops are looking for a third suspect in connection with the shooting of two deliverymen outside a Bronx McDonald’s. Reports say the shooters unleashed a hail of bullets as a result of a dispute that stemmed between the deliverymen over money.
Investigators released surveillance photos of a suspect in the shooting outside a Bronx McDonald’s at 2065 Jerome Avenue. Two other suspects were arrested shortly after the shooting.
At around 10:22 pm on February 7, three men approached a large group of deliverymen who were standing outside the Morris Heights McDonald’s near their parked scooters. Two of the men pulled out guns and fired several rounds at the group.
Two deliverymen suffered gunshot wounds to their feet. They were treated at a nearby hospital.
Cops picked up two of the suspects nearby. A third man fled on a scooter and is still at large.
Investigators said one of the victims had been having an ongoing dispute over money with one of the suspects who is a bicycle deliveryman.
It is unclear at this time what role the suspect still at large played in the shooting.
