A 22-year-old Bronx man was shot to death while paying respects to friend that died almost a year ago in the exact location. Jonathan Lewis was shot twice and died on the way to the hospital. The murder suspect, 18 year old Darrell Patillo, said that feud was caused by a Facebook disagreement. The family of Jonathan Lewis said that he did not have a Facebook page. The New York Daily News reports:
Jonathan Lewis came as a mourner, and left as a murder victim.
In a case of deadly déjà vu, the Bronx man was gunned down at a memorial vigil for a friend killed almost one year earlier on the same corner.
Lewis, 22, was shot twice in his torso Wednesday night as he honored slain pal Michael Ikoli, killed last May near his Webster Ave. home by a gunman who remains on the streets.
“It shouldn’t have happened,” said a sobbing Cynthia Shields, the dead man’s mother, after the shooting. “He was paying his respects for his friend.”
