Teen Charged In Devoe Park Killings


A Bronx teen was awaiting arraignment Saturday on charges of fatally shooting two young men and wounding another to exact revenge over an earlier brawl, police said, according to the New York Daily News.

Yenfri Ramirez, 16, is accused of gunning down Allan Matos, 22, and Edwin Liz, 17, Thursday night at Devoe Park near W.Fordham Road and University Ave., police said. An unidentified 40-year-old man was also shot in the leg, cops said.

Sources said a friend who had been fighting with the victims earlier in the day had summoned the gun-toting Ramirez. When he arrived, Ramirez exchanged words and then shot the victims, sources said.

Ramirez, who has prior arrests for possession of a knife and drugs, was charged with murder, attempted murder, manslaughter and possession of a weapon.

Saturday, a makeshift shrine with candles and photos of the dead men was set up across from the park, with friends and family gathered around.
