CONCOURSE — Police have identified two suspects wanted for the shooting of a 14-year-old boy killed as he made his way to school in the Bronx.
Travis Bloch, 25, and Jeremiah "Jay" Thomas, 16, both of the Bronx, are wanted for the fatal shooting of Christopher Duran outside of 1174 Sheridan Ave. on May 22, police said.
Duran, a suspected gang member, got into an argument with Bloch and Thomas at about 8:30 a.m. One of the suspects then fired three shots at Duran, hitting him twice in the torso and once in the head and killing him, sources said.
Bloch and Thomas fled south on Sheridan Avenue afterwards, police said.
Duran was walking out of his building with his younger brother on the way to school when he was shot, family members said.
Police recovered two videos of the shooting, including one NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce described as "pretty gruesome."
Bloch has been arrested numerous time starting in 2001 when he was busted for robbery when he was 11, the New York Daily News reported.
In February 2014, Bloch fought with two officers who tried to arrest him for assaulting a female friend, the News reported.
Police described Bloch as 5-foot-6 inches tall weighing 150 pounds. Thomas was described as about 6 foot and weighing 170 pounds with brown eyes.
