Argument Over Parking Spot Leads to Man Being Shot in the Bronx: Police

An argument over a parking spot in the Bronx turned violent Friday morning, police say.

Authorities said two men were got into a dispute over the parking space at the corner of W. 169th Street and Plimpton Avenue in Highbridge when one of the men took out a gun and shot the other in the buttocks.

The 32-year-old victim was standing on the corner by his car when the suspect told him to move it, police said. When the victim refused, the suspect circled around, got out of the car and opened fire, according to police. 

The victim was shot one time and taken to an area hospital, where he is in serious but stable condition. He is expected to recover, police said.

The suspect immediately fled in an unknown direction in a red car. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie, officials said.
