Last Wednesday, April 27, just before 10 p.m., police responded to a 911 call reporting of a male shot in front of 64 W. 192nd St. When they arrived, police said they found Julio Rodriguez, 25, with two gunshot wounds to the torso.
Emergency responders transported Rodriguez to St. Barnabas Hospital, but it was too late. He was pronounced dead on arrival. There have been no arrests, police say, and the investigation is ongoing.
It was the third murder in the 52nd Precinct so far this year. Rodriguez lived at 2604 University Ave., literally around the block from where he was found mur
