THE BRONX - Police say two men have been charged in the murder of a Bronx man who was fatally shot early Saturday morning in Highbridge.

According to police, the three men drove down Anderson Avenue and turned onto West 162nd Street. They say the car hopped the curb and drove on the sidewalk, knocking out traffic signs, side-swiping cars and bringing down a tree.
