Investigators believe the double shooting in Greenburgh Thursday was a case of retaliation.
According to police, 26-year-old Carl Jones, of Mount Vernon, and 21-year-old Curtis Richburg, of White Plains, opened fire and hit two people in the arm and leg about 8:30 p.m. on Manhattan Avenue. Police say the suspects then fled the scene and tossed their gun while leading officers on a chase. The suspects were eventually caught and police found another gun in their vehicle.
An investigation shows the shooting may have been in retaliation for an earlier assault on Richburg. However, police say it appears the two shooting victims were not part of that earlier assault. Both victims were taken to the Westchester Medical Center. Jones and Richburg were charged with attempted murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
