BAYCHESTER, the Bronx — Police are searching for the suspect who shot two men sitting in a parked car in the Bronx, killing one.
The victims were sitting inside the car at the intersection at Ely Avenue and Adee Avenue in Baychester. When police got there around 5:03 a.m. Sunday, they found an 18-year-old man shot in the leg and a 23-year-old man shot in the head.
Neighbor Calvin Jeffrey was awoken from the gunshots and subsequent screams for help that followed, he told PIX11 News.
Jeffrey also saw both victims lying in the street and watched as an ambulance took them away.
“It was pretty shocking to me,” he said.
EMS transported both victims to Jacobi Medical Center, where the 23-year-old, identified as Bronx man Jordan Jackwett, was pronounced dead.
Jackwett lived nearby where he was killed at 3020 Ely Ave. His family and friends were shocked at the news of his passing.
“My cousin was a really good father,” Tyson Johnson told PIX11. “It’s unbelievable.”
A friend of Jackwett’s, Amania, told PIX11 that Jackwett was a “really nice guy.”
“It’s heartbreaking,” she said. “Nobody wants to see their close friend not here anymore.”
The investigation is ongoing.
