Police Hunt Killer in Perry Avenue Shooting

Detectives are looking for the individual who shot and killed a man along Perry Avenue (pictured above), a quiet tree-lined street in Norwood, just three short blocks from the 52nd Precinct.

Police were called to Perry Avenue, between Mosholu Parkway North and E. 204 Street, at 2:24 a.m., on Saturday, June 19, when officer's discovered the victim, who had been shot several times.

The victim was rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival at 3:55 a.m.

One resident of the block, who declined to give his name, said, "I heard about five or six shots. I looked out the window and I saw a dead guy, he was wearing a white t-shirt and people were yelling, 'Help, Help.'"

The resident said the victim was shot behind the wheel of a silver Mercedes, but no such vehicle was seen on the block just a few hours later.

Police have since identified the victim as 27-year old Jason White, but would not say where White was from. Police officials would also not comment on a possible description of the suspect, which one police source described as a Hispanic female wearing black Spandex pants.
