NEW YORK (PIX11) - Police have identified two suspects they believe were involved in the fatal shooting of a 14-year-old boy in front of his Bronx building last Friday.
One of the two men suspected of opening fire on Christopher Duran, killing him with three bullets to the abdomen and head, is 28-year-old Travis Bloch. Surveillance cameras captured the entire shooting. Police said the video shows the two suspects, faces obscured by bandannas and hoodies, run up to Duran and shoot him in the face at point-blank range.
Police named 16-year-old Jeremiah Thomas as the second suspect Thursday evening.
Duran was pronounced dead in front of the apartment building where his family lived at 1181 Sheridan Ave. in the Concourse section of the Bronx.
Police sources told PIX11 the shooting could have been connected with either gang activity or a previous conflict among groups in the neighborhood. Duran had a rap sheet that included arrests for robbery, assault and possession of a knife.
Police describe Bloch as 5 feet 10 inches tall and about 150 pounds.
