Two Mount Vernon Men Were Shot on South Second Avenue on Sunday Night

Shortly after 9:00 PM, on Sunday May 15, 2022, Mount Vernon Police received reports of shots fired in the area of South Second Avenue and East Third Street. When the first patrol officers arrived on scene they found a man, later identified as, 32-year-old, Antwaine Williams of Mount Vernon, suffering from a gun shot wound to the right upper leg. Williams was stabilized on scene and transported to Jacobi Medical Center, Bronx, NY for treatment. After arriving on scene officers were alerted by staff at Montefiore Mount Vernon Hospital that a man, later identified as 36 year-old Ben Holmes, of Mount Vernon, had walked into the Emergency Room with a gun shot wound to the left foot. Both victims are expected to fully recover.

Detectives from the Mount Vernon Police Department believe, Holmes and Williams were part of a larger group of men that had gathered on South Second Avenue and were playing dice. At some point an unknown person approached this group and opened fire, striking the two men.
