THE BRONX — Two Bronx men were killed in separate shootings in less than two hours on Friday, police said.
Robert Adkins, 47, was shot in his stomach at around 7:36 p.m. in the basement of a Concourse Village building, police said.
He had been visiting the Clay Avenue building, near 166th Street, as part of his regular routine of playing dominoes there with old friends, residents told the NY Daily News.
He was declared dead at the scene by rescuers, police said.
His daughter, who the Costco worker was putting through college, sobbed over him at the scene of the shooting, witnesses said, though it was unclear if she had witnessed it. Though Adkins lived in Morris Heights, he was often seen at the building, the News reported.
Soon afterwards a 24-year-old was shot in the buttocks in Throgs Neck, police said, and did not survive the attack.
Jamel Taylor was found by police responding to a 911 reporting a male shot in front of 2819 Schley Ave., where Taylor lived. The young man was rushed to Jacobi Hospital, but was declared dead on arrival, police said.
No arrests were made in either case, and investigations were ongoing for both, the NYPD said.
