He also was pronounced dead at the hospital. Officers also found a 29-year-old man who they say was shot in the arm and is now in stable condition. No arrests have been made.
Just one block over on 170th Street, another shooting took place just before 6 p.m. Police say a 29-year-old Brooklyn man was shot in the chest and killed. News 12 is told that victim’s name is Anthony Robinson.
The night was also violent in Brooklyn, with police reporting a fatal shooting in Brownsville. They say a 21-year-old man was found shot in the chest. He was pronounced dead at Brookdale Hospital.

He says everyone must work together to address violence.
