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 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.
"She wasn't moving at all," said Alex Tejara. "She was shot by the head, from what I saw."
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.
