Police ID victims in fatal Bronx shooting

Police have identified the two victims killed in a Bronx shooting Monday.



It happened around 5 a.m. on Weeks Avenue near 175th Street in Mount Hope.



One of the victims' families says 37-year-old Yajahira Duverge and 33-year-old Beramy Garcia were hanging out after the Dominican parade when both were shot to death. 



Duverge got re-married about four years ago, her family says, after her husband was fatally shot nearly a block away from where she was killed this morning.



They say she is a mother of four, and that her husband had just returned from the store when he found Duverge and Garcia shot in the head, arm and back outside on the street. 



Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene. 



Police say they are looking for at least one gunman and have recovered a gun on the street near the shooting.
