January 29, 2022 – Bronx, NY: Two men were shot Saturday evening in the Fordham Heights section of the Bronx after the pair approached a car while brandishing a firearm and a vehicle passenger, also armed with a weapon opened fire striking both men, police said.
According to an article by the DailyMail, an off-duty corrections officer fired the shots striking both assailants in a botched robbery after allegedly being set up by his own date. A 26-year old suffered a life-threatening gunshot wound to the chest and an additional male, 22, was in critical but stable condition after being shot multiple times.
Police responded to a 911 call regarding two males shot at East 183 st & Tiebout avenue just after 6:00 p.m., after 911 callers reported hearing at least 5 to 6 shots, near PS209 Elementary School, police said.
EMS responded and both individuals in their twenties were rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital on Saturday night, an NYPD spokesperson said.
The investigation into this incident is ongoing and no arrests have been made.
