NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The search continued Thursday afternoon for whoever shot and killed two men and a woman in the Castle Hill section of the Bronx earlier in the day.

As 1010 WINS’ Sonia Rincon reported, one of the victims had just stopped by the Shore Haven Diner. A woman who works there said the man was cheerful and said good morning to everyone.

“We let him use the bathroom,” she said. “He said thank you, walked right out, and that happened.”

“I heard the shots – boom, boom, boom, like three times!” another woman said.

The woman said she has heard gunshots in the neighborhood before, but not at 9:30 a.m.

NYPD Bronx Detective Bureau Assistant Chief Jason Wilcox said officers found two 33-year-old men shot in the head, and a 45-year-old woman shot in the torso.

“We don’t know what led up it,” Wilcox said. “It seemed the male walked towards the two males and began firing at them.”

The woman may have been an innocent bystander, police said. All three victims died at the hospital.

As police searched nearby apartment buildings for the killer Thursday afternoon, they were looking at surveillance video.
