Man shot and killed in Morrisania

MORRISANIA - Police are investigating the shooting of a man who was shot several times Saturday night.

A 25-year-old man was shot and killed shortly after 11:15 p.m. Saturday in front of 668 East 161st St. His name has not been released.

A cashier at a nearby bodega says the man was shot down the block and ran into the store. She says he was shot through the neck and had trouble breathing before help arrived.

Earlier this month, someone was shot across the street from the bodega. Local residents say they have considered moving out of the area in response to the two shootings.
