Murder on DeKalb Ave. (Updated)

A man identified as Victor Anderson, 26, of Brooklyn, was murdered early last Saturday morning on Dekalb Avenue, just north of Gun Hill Road in the Norwood section of the Bronx.

Police say they responded to reports of a man shot in front of 3535 DeKalb Ave. at 12:55 a.m. They found Anderson with a gun shot wound to the head. He was transported to North Central Bronx Hospital just two blocks away, but was pronounced dead on arrival.

Neighbors say police were knocking on doors at near-by apartment buildings until at least 2:30 a.m., but police say they have no suspects at this time and that the investigation is ongoing.

For years, the stretch of DeKalb Avenue, north of Gun Hill Road, has been a hotbed for the drug trade. Two years ago, federal authorities took down an extensive network of drug traffickers and associated gang members several blocks north of where the shooting took place.

It was the first murder in the 52nd Precinct in months, but the second shooting incident in the last two weeks.

We first published this on the Norwood News' Facebook page, which you can access by going to facebook.com and searching for "Norwood News."

Update: Deputy Inspector John D'Adamo, the commanding officer of the 52nd Precinct, says his investigators are actively pursuing the case and tracking down some promising leads. He also said that despite the area's reputation for drug activity, the murder "is possibly not narcotics related." It is the first murder in the precinct since D'Adamo took over command of the precinct on Oct. 27. Trying now, to track down when exactly the last murder was.
