One of the two suspects involved in the shooting, a 28-year-old man, was taken into custody with charges pending against him. The firearm he allegedly used was recovered at the scene, police said.
An ongoing investigation into the incident identified a second suspect, who remains at large, police said.
NYPD officers responded to a 911 call of a male shooting victim just before 11 p.m. and found a 24-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the torso as well as a 28-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the face upon arriving at the scene, the agency said.
Emergency Medical Services transported both men to a hospital, where they were pronounced dead.
The shooting took place as New York and other cities nationwide are experiencing a rise in homicides and gun violence incidents that began in 2020 at the onset of the pandemic.
Then, another 28-year-old man who is alleged to be a friend of the 24-year-old victim, took the gun and shot the 28-year-old, ABC7 reported.
