DA: Brother of man shot while with daughter indicted for killing 2 men in retaliation
Two men have been indicted for fatally shooting two men and for wounding another inside a building hallway in Claremont, according
to Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark.
The shooting is believed to have been in retaliation for the killing of one of the suspect's brother, who was shot while walking with his young daughter.
Clark says Kalvin Robinson, 28, and Nasir Greene, 21, were arraigned on two counts of second-degree murder, attempted murder in

Those two men were inside an apartment building hallway with another man when they were shot. They were later pronounced dead at the
Clark says one of the men who died was in the vehicle when Robinson was killed.
