HARLEM, Manhattan -- A sketch has been released of a man wanted in the shooting death of a grandmother who was killed while playing dominoes at a park in Harlem.
Odessa Simms, 61, died Saturday when she was struck by a stray bullet. Police do not believe she was the shooter's intended target.
Colonel Charles Young Park was packed with more than 1,000 people for a cook-out when shots rang out, police said.
Simms, a wife, a mother of five and grandmother of 12, was shot once in the neck. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Police sources told PIX11 News a man in his 30s was seen fighting, chasing and shooting at another man about the time Simms was hit. Police released a sketch Thursday of a clean-shaven man with short black hair and an athletic build.
A $10,000 reward has been offered leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for the innocent bystander's death.
