Man, 22, fatally shot in his car, tries to speed off, then crashes on Bronx street

A Bronx shooting victim made a final, desperate bid to drive away from his attacker before collapsing in his car Tuesday, cops said.

Jose Velez, 22, was sitting in his Honda Accord, with his girlfriend, when he started arguing with a man on Van Nest Ave. and Unionport Road in Van Nest just after 4:05 p.m., cops said.

A second man emerged from a nearby building and opened fire, striking Velez in the chest, cops said.

Velez drove off, heading west on Van Nest, then hung a left onto Garfield St., making it about two blocks to Baker Ave. before he crashed into several parked cars, cops said.

 Medics rushed Velez to Jacobi Medical Center, where he died.
