Police say the man they are looking for is Dane Richardson. They say Richardson is known in the area.

Police released a photo of the 36-year-old and say he is part of a gang wanted for two recent homicides.

This past Sunday, police say the two brothers were standing outside their home on Randall Avenue when shots struck 19-year-old Stephon Brown and his 21-year-old brother.

Stephon Brown later died at a local hospital. The motive behind the shooting is still under investigation.

Police say back in August, 26-year-old Nestor Ventura was fatally shot in the courtyard of an apartment complex on Commonwealth Avenue in Clason Point. They say it happened around 4 a.m. and that the shooting happened during an argument.

Richardson is known to the authorities, and they say he has a long criminal history. Detectives say he may be out of New York City at this time.
