A Bronx woman died after being shot in the head on a street corner in Hunts Point late Tuesday afternoon, authorities said.
Police said the 43-year-old woman, identified as Kenia Castillo-Reyes, was near Coster Street and Spofford Avenue when she was shot at about 4:00 p.m.
She was taken to Lincoln Hospital, where she later died.
Police are searching for a male seen running from the area.
A man working nearby said he heard a barrage of gunshots he initially thought were noises from a nearby construction site.
But when he emerged from the store, he saw a woman lying on the ground.
A nearby school delayed its dismissal as police responded to the shooting. No one was hurt, however.
A motive in the shooting wasn’t clear. Police are still investigating.
Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit NYPDCrimestoppers.com.
