Man fatally shot in front of bodega in Claremont

Police say a man was shot and killed early Friday morning at the corner of East 170th Street and College Avenue.



The victim has been identified as 27-year-old Kareem Moye, who lived around the block from where the incident took place.

 

According to police, Moye was shot several times in the chest just after midnight. He was taken to Bronx Lebanon Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 



Moye is believed to have been the intended target of the shooting, although witnesses say the shooter did not say anything as he opened fire.

 

Officials say they are searching for the suspect, who was reportedly wearing a mask during the shooting. 



Back in August, 17-year-old Dontay Gordon was also fatally shot on the same corner.



Investigators say they recovered a handgun nearby, but no arrests have been made and no motive is known.
