PARKCHESTER, the Bronx — The NYPD on Sunday released a new surveillance image of an SUV that allegedly fled the scene of a deadly double shooting outside a Bronx funeral home on Friday.
Officers were called to a shooting outside the Parkchester Funeral Home along Unionport Road just after 7 p.m., police said.
When they arrived, police found a 37-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his chest and a 27-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his right leg, authorities said.
Both men were taken to the hospital where the 37-year-old, later identified as Leshaun Whitefield, was pronounced dead.
According to police, the men were standing outside the funeral home when shots were fired from a gray Chevy Equinox driven by an unknown person.
Police on Sunday put out a new image of a Jeep they said also fled the scene of the shooting.
It was not immediately clear if the Jeep was a second vehicle involved or was the original vehicle used in the shooting.
