Gang Member Shot To Death Near Harlem Deli (Update)

July 7, 2017

Bullets erupted outside a Harlem bodega early Friday, killing a reputed gang member and wounding a bystander coming home from work, cops said.

A gunman walking west on 133rd St. turned the corner onto Amsterdam Ave., drew a revolver and shot a 25-year-old man standing in front of the Gourmet Deli in the head around 5:30 a.m., police said.

“I was walking in my building and I heard two shots — bang, bang,” said a 22-year-old neighbor, who had just parked his car near the deli when the shooting began. “I saw the guy lying on the sidewalk in front of the deli and three guys running down Amsterdam.”

The blood was shed across the street from Public School 61, the Don Pedro Albizu Campos Elementary School.

Medics rushed the mortally wounded victim to Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Hospital but he died at 6 a.m., officials said. His name was not immediately released.
