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.
