MORRISANIA — A South Bronx man was shot six times after getting into a "stare down" on Thursday outside his friend's building, police said.
The 20-year-old victim was walking up to visit a friend at 818 Home St. when he got into what police described as a "stare down" with his two attackers, 17-year-old Javier Crespo and an unidentified man.
The men got into an argument, and then Lewis told police that he went inside to smoke marijuana.
When he came back out and started to walk down the sidewalk, Crespo shot him in the legs six times: four times in the left and twice in the right, according to the NYPD. Both suspects then fled.
The victim was taken to Lincoln Hospital in stable condition, according to police, who added that he is cooperating with the investigation and has no prior arrest history.
Officers described Crespo as 5 feet 4 inches tall and 170 pounds.
