1 person killed after shootout with police in Inwood

INWOOD, Manhattan (WABC) — One person was killed after a police-involved shooting in the northern Manhattan neighborhood of Inwood early Sunday.

Detectives have been out all day Sunday trying to find out what caused the initial dispute.

The intersection of Dyckman Street and Nagle Avenue was littered with shell casings and evidence marks.

According to police, uniformed officers driving in an unmarked car observed an argument among a group of people around 10 p.m.

Four officers with the neighborhood safety team drove by in an unmarked car when they spotted the fight and a man holding a gun in the crowd.

“They give commands to the person to drop the firearm, they yell repeated commands and then at some point officers fire their weapons,” said one officer.

Surveillance video from a nearby business shows people running from the scene and others taking cover between parked cars.

The police state that all four officers opened fire on the 29-year-old man.

He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Another man suffered a wound.

At this point, police say they still don’t know exactly what the dispute was about.

Police released a photo of a gun found at the scene.
