BALDWIN HARBOR, LONG ISLAND (WPIX)—One man is dead and another seriously wounded. Friends and family of the dead man say he is 22-year-old Anthony Richard.
Nassau County cops say he and another man were sitting in a black Mercedes on Adams street a little before 11 p.m. Sunday when someone opened fire. Both men were hit numerous times.
Detective Lt. John Azzata of the Nassau County Police Homicide Squad told PIX11 News what responding officers found when they arrived on the scene.
"They were confronted with a male who obviously had been shot numerous times. That person was transported to a local hospital."
Cops say after the shooting the wounded man fled the car and ran to the next block where he sought help. A person living in a home there called 911 according to police.
June Noon said she heard the commotion. "I heard two men, one of whom sounded distressed. He said to his buddy you got to get me to a hospital."
But there's more according to Detective Lt. Azzatta, " As they were responding to that call a second call came in for a second location and another individual who was shot. Unfortunately that individual succumbed to the wounds that were inflicted on him."
At the scene detectives combed yards looking for clues, while family members of the murdered man grieved nearby.
A man who would say only that he was the man's uncle told PIX 11, "Richard was a good kid who was like a father to my children. He was going to school."
Police say so far they have no suspects and the investigation is continuing.
