Chain-Stealing Gang Shoots Up Bronx Street

Three thugs shot at a Bronx resident Sunday, demanding the victim's chain, cops say.

Around 3:30 a.m., the suspected perps pointed a gun at the victim in front of 819 East 173rd Street.

They demanded the necklace, but the victim fled. Police say that one of the suspects, 18-year-old Luis Delacruz (pictured here) fired a gun four times, but nobody was hurt.

The other suspect is described as a 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-9, 150 to 170-pound Hispanic male between 17 and 20 years old. It's unclear what the third suspect looks like.
