NEW YORK (AP) — Police say a man who fired at a minivan in the Bronx was later hit by the vehicle and killed.
The deadly confrontation happened at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday in the Morris Heights section.
Police say a romantic rivalry may have triggered the violence.
They say 43-year-old Edward Jenkins saw his former girlfriend in the minivan with another man and began firing a gun.
The driver, 25-year-old Jonathan Mejia, took off but later encountered the Jenkins and ran him down.
The Jenkins was pronounced dead at Bronx Lebanon Hospital.
Mejia now faces charges of murder, manslaughter, leaving the scene of an accident and driving while his ability was impaired.
