Police say one man was killed during a late-night shooting in Belmont.

Officials say they found 37-year-old Miguel Aviles with gunshot wounds to his stomach behind a building on East 183rd Street. He was later pronounced dead at St. Barnabas Hospital.

The shooting reportedly happened during a memorial service Saturday around 10:30 p.m.

Police say a 25-year-old woman also suffered a grazed gunshot wound. She was also taken to St. Barnabas Hospital.
