The NYPD wants to cross a Bronx triple murder suspect off the wanted list – and they’re offering a $10,000 reward to anyone who can help put him behind bars.
Cops on Tuesday announced the reward, paid by the city’s Police Foundation, for info leading to the arrest and conviction of 51-year-old Sam Cross.
Cross is accused of turning a Castle Hill strip mall into a broad-daylight bloodbath on June 21, when he opened fire on Castle Hill Ave., between Cincinnatus and Randall Aves.
He shot Mustafa Tarver and Christopher Alleyne, both 33, in the head, cops said. Arileida Jiminez, 45, who was handing out insurance pamphlets outside a diner, was also killed when one of Cross’ bullets struck her in the torso, cops said.
Investigators think the shooting was gang-related, and Tarver was the intended target. Cops are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.

Yeah this case is prime example as to why gang fugitives and violence still poses a threat to innocent people as well. Not that it's right to shoot at rival gang members of course, but Arilelda Jimenez appears to have simply been doing her job when Sam Cross allegedly killed her in the bloodbath. Since this happened in broad daylight, who knows how many other local residents were put in harm's way.
Anyway, there aren't many places to blend in the state of Maine, which is one of the reasons we found out that AMW only caught one or two fugitives there during the show's run a couple of years ago. Hopefully that means Sam will be caught as soon as possible.
