A deadly quadruple shooting took place in West Farms on Wednesday night.
Residents who live nearby say the people who were shot were there to pay their respects to 26-year-old gun violence victim Carlos Gonzales, who was shot at this same corner two days ago.
NYPD officials say that a total of four victims were rushed to Saint Barnabas Hospital, where one man who was shot in the chest was pronounced dead. A 27-year-old was shot in the leg and is in critical condition, and a 46-year-old man is also in critical condition after suffering a gunshot to the torso. Another 27-year-old man was shot in the arm and is expected to make a full recovery. 
Community members say they are fed up with the crime in this neighborhood. 
“There was a gentleman laying down on the ground by the chicken shack actually lifeless,” said resident Fedi. “Supposedly that individual passed away and it’s just crazy cause it’s an everyday thing, and it seems to get even more violent. It’s repetitive.” 
The NYPD says the suspect may have run off toward Southern Boulevard after the shooting took place.  No arrests have been made at this time.
