The shooting occurred around 2:30 p.m. Friday at the 1200 block of Park Street in Peekskill, police said.
Upon arrival, officers discovered a 22-year-old who had sustained a single gunshot wound. Reports have indicated that he may have been involved in an argument with another man just prior to the shooting, said Don Halmy, the Peekskill Chief of Police.
The victim, who was later identified as Khalil Lyons of the Bronx, was transported to New York-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
