MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – A day after a Harrison homeowner was fatally gunned down by an unidentified assailant in Mount Vernon, police are seeking information from the community that can point them in the direction of the shooter.

According to police, Dean Daniels, 30, has been identified as the victim in Monday night’s shooting after he was found with a gunshot wound in his back shortly before 6 p.m. near the intersection of East Prospect and Park Avenue.

Emergency medical crews attempted to revive Daniels, but he was pronounced dead at the hospital Monday night. The investigation is ongoing, and police are asking anyone with information to call detectives at 914-665-2510.

About 30 minutes after Daniels was shot, more bullets rang out in Mount Vernon, leading police to respond to Beechwood Avenue, where a structure was hit. It remains unclear if the two incidents are related.
