Gunman injures 3 at Bronx bodega

THE BRONX - Police are searching for the gunman who opened fire at a Bronx bodega Thursday night, injuring three people.

Married father of five Ricardo Acevedo says he's lucky to be alive after taking a bullet to the skull on Astor Avenue, near the Pelham Parkway Houses.

According to cops, two teens were also shot, but are expected to be OK.

Last July, a 5-year-old was wounded on the same block and a police source says it's believed that the same people are involved. For an extended interview with the Bronx man shot in the head on Astor Avenue, click on iO Extra on Channel 612.
