Police seeking gunman in Parkchester shooting

Police are on the hunt for a suspect in the fatal shooting of a Bronx teenager.

Officials say Londell Byrd, 18, was shot and killed Saturday on Nobel Avenue. Byrd was hit in the torso and was pronounced dead at Jacobi Medical Center.

Investigators are looking for Jimmy Delgado, 18, in connection with the shooting. They describe Delgado as 5'6" tall and weighing about 155 pounds.

Gwendolyn Rodriguez, Byrd?s grandmother, believes the shooting stemmed from a fight the two had last week.

A wake for Byrd will be held on Tuesday at Ortiz Funeral Home on Westchester Avenue.
