Pope Visit Can’t Stop Gun Violence

Pope Visit Can’t Stop Gun Violence

By Dan Gesslein

BRONX, NEW YORK (BRONX NEWS)- Guess the Pope’s visit to New York didn’t curb violence in the Bronx. Another day time shooting has rocked the borough- this time with fatal results.

Police released a video from a local store which shows a man opening fire on a Kingsbridge street. The incident took place around 2:49 p.m. on September 20. Police found 24-year-old David Hooks lying on the street with a gunshot wound to the torso. He was pronounced DOA at St. Barnabas Hospital. 

In the video it appears the man is being chased by a duo. The gunman turns and opens fire. One of the two men turned and ran back down the street. The other man tried to escape by ducking behind a van. The gunman is then seen running in the street and apparently firing at the man who ducked for cover.

The gunman is described as a black male, mid 20's, approximately 5 foot 7, tall, goatee with his hair in long braids. He was last seen wearing a dark black t-shirt, white sneakers and gray pants with a black stripe.

Anyone with information is urged to call CRIMESTOPPERS (800) 577-TIPS. All calls are confidential.
