EASTCHESTER — A new dad was shot dead along with another man inside a car on Rombouts Avenue Friday morning, according to relatives and police, who were questioning a man in connection to the double murder.

Jermaine Johnson, 28, and the other unidentified man were sitting in the front seats of a car outside 370 Rombouts Ave., near Light Street, about 4:45 a.m., when a gun man opened fire on them, an NYPD spokesman said.
