New York shooting: Two killed at memorial for man killed a day earlier

Three men were shot, two fatally, at an East Harlem memorial for another man killed the day before.

Police were called to a shooting near East 112th Street and 1st Avenue about 8pm on Saturday night.

“Upon arrival, officers discovered three males at the location with multiple gunshot wounds to various parts of the body,” the NYPD said in a statement. “There are no arrests at this time.”


Police confirmed to The Independent that two of the victims, Stefan Ross, 41, and Frederick Cross, 40, died while a 38-year-old man remained in a critical condition at NYC Health & Hospitals/Metropolitan.

The three men were shot on the sidewalk as they set up candles for a memorial to a friend shot and killed a day earlier, according to reporting by the New York Daily News.
