THE BRONX — The NYPD are on the hunt for a man they say is responsible for two separate fatal shootings in the Bronx that left a man and a teen dead.
According to police, 36-year-old Dane Richardson is connected to a shooting earlier this week that left a 19-year-old dead and a second man wounded, as well as an August shooting that left a 26-year-old man dead.
Richardson is described as standing about 5 feet, 6 inches tall, weighing approximately 170 to 180 lbs, with braided hair. He was last seen wearing dark-colored clothing, police said.
The NYPD said Richardson is known to frequent the Soundview Houses, where the most recent shooting occurred, as well as the city of Richmond, Virginia.
Around 9:15 p.m. on Sunday, cops responded to a 911 call of two men shot near the Soundview Houses on the corner of Randall and Rosedale avenues in the Soundview section of the Bronx.
Responding officers discovered 19-year-old Stephon Brown shot in the back and a 21-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the arm, officials said. Both men were rushed to the hospital, where Brown was pronounced dead, police said.
Back on August 18, just before 4 a.m., police responded to a 911 call of a person shot on Commonwealth Avenue in the Clason Point neighborhood, according to officials.
Cops arrived on the scene to find 26-year-old Nestor Ventura with multiple gunshot wounds to the chest, authorities said. Ventura was taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The NYPD has released the above photos of Richardson.

Thoughts? Based on local news reports, Richardson was still at large at least as of November 21st, 2019. No motive is given except the New York Post claims Richardson is a member of the Bloods and Ventura was a known-drug dealer: nypost.com/2019/11/20/bloods-gang-member-connected-to-two-killings-just-one-block-apart/
Regardless, not that murder for any reason besides self-defense is ok but we saw in the Sam Cross fugitive case also in the Bronx that innocent people often get caught in the crossfire. I'm not excusing Ventura's murder by saying this, but at 4 am that bullet could have ricocheted into a window and hit a child instead of an alleged drug dealer. We don't even know why Stephon Brown was allegedly targeted by Richardson as far as his case is concerned, and it is still important to stress he was a victim and only 19-years old.
Richardson needs to be caught immediately since he has shown a propensity for alleged violence that will not stop until he is arrested.
