THE BRONX -

A 32-year-old Bronx man was shot and killed Thursday night outside a senior rehabilitation center in Westchester. 

Police say Desmond Fleming was targeted when he was fatally shot in a parking lot adjacent to the Westchester Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing in Mount Vernon. 

Employees told News 12 that they called police after the shooting, then tried to save Fleming, who was shot in the chest and stomach. 

They say the victim worked at the center in the kitchen and was well liked. 

The center caters to seniors and has operated on Claremont Avenue for more than three decades. 

Police are still investigating what may have led to the shooting and have not disclosed if anyone is in custody.
