Scooter showdown ends with man shot in the Bronx

A bunch of electrical scooter riders confronted off in opposition to two males sharing the identical sort of two-wheeler within the Bronx — with one allegedly opening fireplace after questioning the duo about being in a gang, police sources stated Monday.

The moped-riding victims, ages 20 and 21, had been zipping alongside Grand Concourse close to East 181st Avenue in Fordham Heights round 2 a.m. Sunday when 4 others pulled up on the puny crotch rockets, the sources stated.

When the foursome requested the pair in the event that they had been gang members, neither man answered — so a person carrying a masks whipped out a gun, in accordance with the police sources.

The gunman then fired two rounds, hitting the 20-year-old within the higher left arm, police stated.

The wounded scooter buff hopped off his journey and ran — then was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital with non-life-threatening accidents, in accordance with cops.

The older sufferer was shot within the left forearm and brought to the identical hospital.

Police are investigating whether or not the victims actually had been in a gang. They gave no motive for why the gunmen would have accused them of that, sources stated.

Cops have two suspects in custody over the capturing, police stated.
