A man is dead and three others, including an 11-year-old, are injured following a shooting Saturday evening inside Claremont Park, police say.

Police tell News 12 it happened near Teller Avenue and Mount Eden Parkway around 11:15 p.m.

They found an 11-year-old boy who had been shot in the shoulder, a 24-year-old woman shot twice in the torso, a 22-year-old man also struck in the torso and another 22-year-old man hit in the leg.

The man shot in the torso was taken to the hospital where he died.

The woman was taken to the hospital in critical condition and the other man is in stable condition.

The child is expected to be OK.

The incident come after lawmakers met in Morrisania to call for $5 billion of funding to go toward community violence intervention programs.

That meeting occurred following a violent Labor Day weekend where seven people were killed in the borough.

Republican mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa says parks need better surveillance.

“Where the hell are the police cameras?” Sliwa says. “If nothing more, a deterrent because people will know that there are cameras in the park.”

In May, a 17-year-old was shot and killed near Claremont Park.

Neighbors say a large party was taking place when the shooting happened. Bottles, lawn chairs, trash and pinatas were left behind. Those who live in the area say the violence needs to stop.

“This is crazy,” one resident told News 12. “Everybody wants to come out and have a good time. We need to start valuing lives.”

No arrests have been made. Police say they are looking for a white Nissan Maxima with Texas license plates.

Shooting at Claremont Park cookout in the Bronx leaves man dead, three others – including 11-year-old boy – injured

Detectives in the Bronx are on the hunt for the shooter who killed a 22-year-old man and injured three others — including an 11-year-old boy — during a barbecue in Claremont Park on Saturday night.

Police said the mass shooting occurred at about 11:13 p.m. on Sept. 18 inside the park in the area of Teller Avenue and Mount Eden Parkway. 

According to law enforcement sources, the victims had been participating in a cookout at the location; published reports indicated that as many as 200 people may have been attendance.

The good times soured, however, when a dispute broke out during the party, police said. An unidentified individual then pulled out a gun and started firing. 

Several men were seen fleeing the park inside a vehicle moments after the bullets rang out, authorities said.

Officers from the 44th Precinct, in responding to a 911 call about the shooting, found three wounded victims at the location: an 11-year-old boy shot in the shoulder; a 24-year-old woman with two bullet wounds in her torso; and a 22-year-old man shot in the torso. 

EMS rushed the boy and the 24-year-old woman to Lincoln Hospital; the child is listed in stable condition, while the woman remains in critical but stable condition.

Paramedics brought the 22-year-old man to BronxCare Health System, where he was pronounced dead a short time later. Police have withheld his identity, pending family notification.

Officers later learned that a fourth victim of the Claremont Park shooting, a 22-year-old man shot in the leg, walked into Lincoln Hospital seeking treatment. He’s listed in stable condition. 

So far, no arrests have been made in the ongoing investigation, police said.

Anyone with information regarding the shooting can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA). You can also submit tips online at, or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls and messages are kept confidential.

Mother of Claremont man shot by police says she wants answers

Six state troopers were legally justified in firing 40 shots at a Claremont man, hitting him nine times, because they were “concerned about their safety” and the safety of residents in the surrounding neighborhood, according to a report from the Office of the Attorney General.

Jeffrey Ely, 40, was shot and killed this March during an hours-long standoff with members of the N.H. State Police SWAT team.

Hours before the shooting, Claremont Police Department responded to a mental health call during which Ely said he was hearing voices from inanimate objects and that the voices were harassing and monitoring him. Friends and acquaintances later said they were concerned about his mental health and drug use leading up to the March shooting.

The day of the shooting, Ely declined to speak to a mental health provider or go in for an evaluation. Officers planned to start filing the paperwork necessary to involuntarily admit him to the hospital for psychiatric treatment.

However, before this plan could take form, Claremont and Newport police received a call that Ely shot at a small group of people near a garage he was renting and living in.

When officers arrived, Ely shot one of his many loaded guns from inside the garage, promoting the Claremont police chief to call in backup from the state police.

Ely, who had a criminal record but was not a convicted felon, did not respond to calls from the crisis negotiation unit to deescalate the situation via phone call and loudspeaker, according to the report.

“Officers believed he had difficulty distinguishing between their voices and voices in his head,” New Hampshire Assistant Attorney General Scott Chase said Wednesday.

State Troopers used an armored vehicle to break down the door in the garage, at which point Ely began firing at the vehicle with an AR-style rifle.

Six troopers — Gary Ingham, William Neilsen, Stefan Czyzowski, Nicholas Cyr, Shane Larkin, and Noah Sanctuary — shot a total of about 37 rounds at Ely after he did not heed directions to drop his gun and instead walked towards the door.

Sixteen seconds later, Larkin fired another three rounds at Ely after he fell to the ground because he said he saw him turning and raising his gun.

“I did not want him to then just randomly as a last-ditch effort take… his rifle and just start firing at us indiscriminately,” Larkin said to investigators.

Two of the troopers, Czyzowski and Cyr, had previously been involved in previous non-fatal officer shootings in 2019 and 2008 respectively.

Ely’s death was ruled a homicide by Dr. Mitchell Weinberg, the Deputy Chief Medical Examiner. The autopsy also revealed that Ely’s body had amounts of methamphetamine, amphetamine, norbuprenorphine, and buprenorphine, a drug sometimes used to treat opioid use disorders.

Chase said it was reasonable for the SWAT team members to believe they faced an imminent threat of deadly force from Ely, meeting the legal justification of using deadly force.

They also concluded that Larkin’s second round of shots was legally justified.
