One dead, three wounded, including 11-year-old boy, in Bronx park barbecue shooting
At a loud barbecue in a park in the Bronx, four people were shot dead, one victim died and the others, including an 11-year-old boy, were injured, police said on Sunday.
In Claremont Park near Teller Ave. and the Mount Eden Parkway gunfire rang out just before 11:15 p.m. On Saturday there was an argument at the barbecue party to celebrate Central American Independence Day, police officers and witnesses said.
Diana Martinez, a 29-year-old neighborhood resident, said she had only been grilling for about an hour before an argument broke out between two women.

"I heard five or six shots and everyone was running," Martinez said. “They screamed and fell on top of each other, ran and were scared. They were scared. There were a lot of people there. "
At least one in three men the police are looking for pulled out a gun and started firing shots into the crowd. The men fired shots indiscriminately into the sea of partygoers and took off, the police said.
EMS took three of the victims to local hospitals. Later, a 22-year-old man was admitted to Lincoln Hospital with a gunshot wound in his leg.
A 22-year-old man brought to the Bronx Care Health System by EMS died of a gunshot wound to the upper body. His name was not published immediately.
An 11-year-old boy who was shot in the shoulder was in stable condition at Lincoln Hospital. A 24-year-old woman was blown twice in the torso and was in critical condition in the same hospital.
Police officers seized a gun at the scene, sources said.
On Sunday afternoon, Martinez searched the rubble left by frightened partygoers looking for the cell phone of a friend lost in the chaos. She moved into the neighborhood two months ago and had never been to Claremont Park before Saturday night.
"It was really scary," she said of the shooting. “People, they only come to have fun. Then they will be shot. "
At a press conference in Claremont Park on Sunday, mayoral GOP candidate Curtis Sliwa criticized the de Blasio administration and the city park ministry for lack of lighting and NYPD surveillance cameras in city parks.
"You can say what a bad circumstance it must have been when people fled for their lives, fled for their lives when they left everything else behind," said Sliwa.
The police are still looking for the men behind the deadly shootings. They fled in a white Nissan, the police said.
