Police have released additional photos of men sought in connection with a fatal Dec. 14 shooting in Harlem in which a resident of Washington Heights was killed.

Police are now asking the public to help identify four men (pictured above) walking with Raheem McWhite, 32, before he was shot and killed. McWhite was seen walking with the men on Lenox Avenue between West 127th and 128th streets, police told Patch.

McWhite, a resident of West 157th Street, was discovered around 6:45 p.m. on Dec. 14 outside a restaurant on Lenox Avenue suffering from a gunshot wound to the stomach, police said. McWhite was transported to Harlem Hospital and pronounced dead, police said.

Police had previously release a photograph of three men walking south on Lenox Avenue after the shooting. The latest photo shows the presence of a fourth mean wearing gray pants and a gray and blue sweatshirt, who was not with the three other men after the shooting occurred.

The four men have not been named suspects in the shooting and nobody has been arrested, police said.
