Yellow Trail of Blood

Posted by 0 in murderhomicideEast 198th StreetBronxBainbridge Avenue

This morning around 3:00am, a man was shot to death near East 198th Street and Bainbridge. A macabre line of yellow cards with numbers snakes up Bainbridge Avenue for 200 feet, marking the last moments of his life. Six large cards for the shells fired and some 30 smaller cards for the spilt blood stand in striking contrast to the fall colors of the leaves on the trees lining the street. The victim was pronounced dead at the hospital. There have been 4,161 murders in the City since 2003; 40% occurred in Brooklyn, 24% in the Bronx.

 

 The Bronx has the highest rate, 12.4% per 100,000 residents compared to 11.2% for Brooklyn. Hopefully, this homicide is not an indicator of more to come.

Currently, it appears that the victim might have been a player pending the final police report on the incident.
