Bronx Crime Watch: Police Seek Suspect in Murder of 16-year-old

Investigators are looking for help locating three suspects (see video), described as being Hispanic males in their late teens or early 20s, who police believe are responsible for the recent murder of 16-year-old Jose Miguel Marte.

A resident of Franklyn Avenue, near E. 166th Street, Marte was shot once in the chest and once in the stomach on Sunday night, Feb. 20. Police found him in front of 365 E. 184th St. EMS took Marte to St. Barnabas Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

A week later, police released a video (see above) showing footage of the suspects walking down a street. The footage is grainy, but police managed to zoom in on the suspects’ faces and slow the images down. Police have not yet identified the suspects and are actively seeking the public’s assistance.

Editor’s note: If you have information about this murder, you can call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline, (800) 577-TIPS. You can also submit tips online at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) and then entering in the code TIP577.
