Police: Mount Vernon man fatally shot while sitting in car in the Bronx
Police say a Mount Vernon man died and a 27-year-old woman was injured by gunfire while
sitting in a car Tuesday in the Bronx.
Police say Robert Hill, 39,
and the woman were sitting in a parked car on East 216 Street and Olinville
Avenue around 6 p.m. when gunfire went off.
They say the woman was shot
in the back and the man in the chest. Both victims were taken to Montefiore Medical Center where
Hill was pronounced dead.
The investigation is ongoing,
but News 12 was told there seemed to be an argument with another person
standing outside the vehicle before they were shot.

man believed to be in his 30s who took off in a white van with Florida license
