Bronx man killed in early a.m. shooting

From the Daily News by Jonathan Lemire:

A 27-year-old Bronx man was gunned down at a quiet intersection early Tuesday, police said.

Residents who live along Rosewood St. and Barker Ave. in Williamsbridge were awoken by the sound of a single gunshot at 12:30 a.m., and several people called 911, police said.

When cops arrived, they found Lester Williams sprawled on the sidewalk and bleeding heavily from a bullet wound to his chest, police said.

Williams was rushed to Jacobi Medical Center where he died a short time later. The motive for the killing remains unknown, police said.

Williams, who had a sealed criminal record, lived less than a block from where he was gunned down, and detectives were trying to determine his whereabouts in the moments before his death.
