MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. - Just days after a “career” criminal took the life of a nightclub owner in a brazen Christmas morning shooting in Mount Vernon, shots rang out again on city streets, and a man was reportedly struck by a bullet.

According to reports , at approximately 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday night, gunshots could be heard on South Fourth Avenue, and a man was struck in the leg. Police officials could not be reached on Wednesday morning as the investigation is ongoing.

The man reportedly made his way to a local business a block away, where he was assisted until emergency personnel could arrive.

On Monday, “ career ” criminal Errol Hillary, 39, was arraigned on a second-degree murder charge after he took out a gun and opened fire at the Mansion on North 3rd Avenue as it was clearing out for the night following last call.

According to police, the shooting took place after security attempted to escort an enraged Hillary from the club’s holiday party. Two of his victims were hospitalized and released over the holiday weekend, while three remain in stable condition at the Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx.

Hillary did not enter a plea to the second-degree murder charge in Mount Vernon City Court on Monday and is being held without bail at the Westchester County Jail. The Bronx native is due back in court on Friday, the same day his victim will reportedly be laid to rest.
