Shooting Leaves One Dead, One Injured

One man was shot dead and another was seriously injured outside Kennedy Fried Chicken and Pizza, at E. 162 174th St., in the early hours of Saturday morning, following an argument with another man which started inside the restaurant. Click here for a map.
The dead man, Jose Viera of Eastburn Avenue, was 24. His brother-in-law, an unnamed 17-year-old who was shot in the face, remains in a serious condition in the hospital. No arrests have been made. Police are searching for a lone gunman.
Friends and neighbors of Viera have erected a memorial (pictured) near to where the men were shot. On Monday morning, Manny Ruiz, a friend of Viera's, came to show his respect. "He [Viera] was never the one to be fighting," said Ruiz. "He was the one to peace it out, one of coolest guys. He wasn't a troublemaker."

  1. My heart goes out to jose family we truly lose a good friend.

  2. For a father to lose his son in that son's prime is truly a great lost . To have him taken in the manner in which he was is a loss that no one should have to bear. there are no words that can ease the pain, but the love of those dear can help to turn the tears and pain into the joy of rememberance. Remember him and smile because when you do he is in our hearts .He is sitting on a cloud smiling knowing he lived a life few get to in such a short time. Say his name and smile , remember the good times and joy and know that one day you will see him again. No good bye only until when! And remember one word JUSTICE!! on earth or in heaven we all must pay our dues . We love you always
