NEW YORK CITY — A man was shot and killed by police officers in The Bronx in one of six Halloween shootings across the city Thursday night, the NYPD said.
The 26-year-old man exchanged shots with officers about 11 p.m. Police had started following him through the Castle Hill Houses, near Castle Hill Avenue and Randall Avenue, when they realized he fit the description of a man who had fired shots there earlier, the NYPD said.
He ran to the intersection of Randall and Olmstead avenues where the officers shot him, a police spokesman said.
The man, whose identity was not released, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. A .45-caliber handgun was recovered there, the NYPD said.
No other injuries were reported in the incident, police said.
Three other men were shot and killed Thursday night and their assailants were not immediately arrested, police said.
