NYC: Man busted in Bronx shooting that killed one, wounded another

Cops cuffed one of three men they say took part in a Bronx shooting that killed one man and wounded another, police said Wednesday.

Nylik Hill, 17, was busted around 10:50 a.m. May 10 after investigators got a tip linking him to the Crotona Park shooting that killed Emmanuel Betanances, 22, and critically wounded a 20-year-old man, police said.

Betanances was shot in the head just a few blocks from his home when a clash between two rival groups erupted in gunfire down the street from Crotona Park on Crotona Park East. near Southern Blvd. around 12:30 p.m. April 26, according to authorities.

Medics rushed Betanances and the younger victim to St. Barnabas Hospital, but Betanances could not be saved.

Police said Hill, of Fleetwood-Concourse Village, knew Betanances from the neighborhood, but whatever sparked the tragic violence is unclear.

The teenager, who has one prior charge for assault, has not cooperated with investigators, refusing to give up the identity of two additional men they believe were involved in the shooting, cops said.

Cops released surveillance images April 28 of Hill and the two other men running away after the skirmish.
