A 24-year-old man has been arrested and charged with the murder of a 39-year-old man who lived in the same building, according to the NYPD.
Police responded to a 911 call from an assisted, unconscious man inside 1290 Rodman Place, which is in 48th Precinct, around noon. 01:45 on November 5th.
The man – identified as Almalik Lee – was unconscious and did not respond as he lay in the hallway on the second floor with gunshot wounds to his torso, according to police, according to an ongoing investigation.
Lee was transported to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
On Tuesday night, authorities said they arrested and charged Isaiah Vasquez with murder and criminal possession of a weapon, according to an ongoing investigation.
Both West Farms men live in the Rodman Place apartment building, according to officials.
The men were seen walking into the building together before the incident, an authority told the Bronx Times. Wednesday afternoon, no other suspects were involved in the case, which police are aware of.
