Police are investigating the shooting death of a 26-year-old man this afternoon outside 3 Haven Plaza between Avenue C and Avenue D. 

According to witnesses, the victim was on a Citi Bike at the time of the shooting around 1:30 p.m. in the area near 12th Street and 13th Street.  (Updated: New info states that the Citi Bike was found at the scene, but it's unclear if anyone was riding it at the time of the shooting.)
NY1 reported that the man, whose identity has not been revealed, was pronounced dead at NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue. 

Police at the scene recovered three shell casings...
Police and published reports stated that the suspect is a man in his 20s who was wearing all black and a face mask. Police officials told ABC 7 that the victim had been targeted by the gunman.

The circumstances leading up to the shooting in unknown at the moment.
In an unrelated shooting early this morning, a 25-year-old woman was shot and killed on 14th Street at Irving Place. That shooting remains under investigation.

The Post reports that the victim was an alleged Money Boy Gang member.
The gunman blasted him four times in the head as he walked out of an apartment building, according to cops and the sources. 

Video reviewed by investigators shows that the gunman walked back and forth after he shot the victim, then kicked him multiple times in the head, sources said.

2 murders in 1 day, both victims in their early 20's, and the suspect for both murders was "someone" wearing all black and a mask.

Jesus Christ. Here's hoping our insane police force is actually back on the streets instead of doing whatever it is they do most days

@1953 the onus is not just on nypd but on the parent(s) who raise these kids and lawmakers who enable criminals.

We never here about an innocent civilian shooting their way out of a crime scene, so why believe it is a scenario worth protecting. The illegal transfer of guns is a business that must end.

Re Duggan 'The illegal transfer of guns is a business that must end.'
Arrest and jail anyone with an illegal gun. Period.

And arrest the republicans that continue to abet the flooding of guns, drooling over the dark blood money they get from Satan’s NRA. Wayne LaPierre should get the death penalty for he has contributed to the demise of our society.

Records show that the victim was paroled last year in connection to an attempted murder conviction. 

“He was a genuine man, he helped a lot of kids during a tough time. He was loved by everybody,” a woman who identified herself as a relative said. ” It was unexpected. Nobody would ever thought this would happen.”

Police force needs officers. NY is a jungle they can’t be everywhere at once.
