A gunman blasted a 21-year-old man in the head during a Bronx deli row Tuesday night, cops said.
The man was attacked outside the Bronx Deli Grocery on E. 180th Street at Daly Avenue in West Farms at about 10:45 p.m., authorities said.
Medics rushed the victim to St. Barnabas Hospital, but he did not survive.
Police on Wednesday identified the victim as Bryce Hamilton and said he lived around the corner from the deli.
Witnesses saw a suspect running from the scene after the gunfire.
