THE BRONX — A man donning a brown suit shot two men in The Bronx Thursday afternoon, according to witnesses and police.

The unidentified man pulled out a gun in front of the Crown Diner on East 161st Street and Gerard Avenue, one block away from Yankee Stadium, around 1:25 p.m., police and witnesses said.

According to a witness, the man shot one victim, a newspaper salesman, at least two times, once in the stomach.

"He didn't care about the kids or nobody," said street vendor Debbie Haughton, 55, who witnessed the incident. "He just started shooting."

Another person on scene was also hit, police said.

The shooter then dropped his gun in front of a nearby pizzeria and put his hands up, Haughton said. Then court officers, who were nearby, corraled him, according to witnesses.

Both victims were taken to Lincoln Hospital, with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

It was not clear what sparked the shooting.
