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.
