Original story:

INWOOD, Manhattan — A luxury car drove onto an Inwood sidewalk early Monday morning when the driver was shot in the head and killed behind the wheel, the NYPD said.

According to officials, police responded around 4:50 a.m. to a call for a man shot on Dyckman Street, between Vermilyea and Sherman avenues.

Responding officers found a 34-year-old man behind the wheel of a BMW sedan who had been shot in the head and killed, police said.

A second man in the car, 33, had been shot in the groin and was transported to an area hospital for treatment of his injuries, officials said.

The car was still in gear when the driver was shot, causing it to roll onto the sidewalk before coming to a rest, police said.

The vehicle did not strike anyone on the sidewalk.

No arrests had been made Monday morning as police investigated what possibly led to the deadly double shooting.
