A 66-year-old man, believed to be an harmless bystander, was killed in an Upper Manhattan drive-by capturing Tuesday night time, cops mentioned.
Reda Girgis was standing on the intersection at West 162nd Street and Broadway in Washington Heights round 7:10 p.m. when he took a bullet to the pinnacle, police mentioned.
It appeared he was not the supposed goal, authorities mentioned.
Witnesses instructed investigators that the suspects have been firing rounds out of a darkish grey SUV, probably an Audi with New Jersey plates, when Girgis was struck, police sources mentioned.
The automobile fled south on Broadway, cops mentioned.
Girgis — who lived on that very same nook — was rushed to Metropolitan Hospital Center, the place he was pronounced dead, cops mentioned.
No arrests have been made, and the motive for the capturing — and who could have been focused — weren’t instantly identified.
One bullet fragment was recovered on the scene, the sources mentioned.
