A 4-year-old girl was among three people shot in a barrage of gunfire that broke out during a fight at a Bronx corner, police say.
Two groups of people had arranged to meet at a corner in Claremont just before noon, and they pulled up in separate cars, according to NYPD Chief of Detectives Bob Boyce.
A fistfight broke out, and one man pulled out a gun and began shooting, Boyce said. Another man in the same group also pulled out a gun and began firing, too.
A black car fled the scene with two of the shooting victims inside, surveillance video shows, according to Boyce. Another vehicle seen on video doing a U-turn, then going southbound on Clay Avenue, is believed to have been occupied by the shooters.
The shooting victims ended up at local hospitals after transporting themselves there.
The 4-year-old girl, who was shot in the back, is believed to have been in one of the cars that fled the scene, Boyce said. She’s expected to be treated and released later Wednesday.
A 57-year-old man shot in the back was the most seriously injured, Boyce said. He appears to have been a participant in the fight.
It’s not clear what role the 33-year-old man shot in the leg played in the shooting, if at all.
None of the injuries are considered life-threatening.
Boyce said video shows a fair amount of people walking by at the time of the shooting, but none was hit.
Police haven’t made any arrests but don’t currently plan to release the video that captured the shooting.
It’s not clear what the fight was about, but video showed the two groups facing each other aggressively and squaring off, Boyce said.
