A 20-year-old Bronx man who was shot in the Fairview section of Greenburgh on Saturday night has died.

Police were called to Manhattan Avenue and Tarrytown Road around 8:10 p.m., where they found the victim. However, police said the victim was shot at Warren Avenue and Oak Street and driven to the second location, according to a news release.

The victim was brought to Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, where he died. Police were withholding the identity of the victim Sunday until the family could be notified.

The suspect fled after the shooting and was described by police Saturday night as a black male in his mid-20s. Police have not released further information about the suspect.

Neighbors in suburban Fairview were shocked and upset Sunday morning to learn of the slaying. The community has a number of churches, apartments and single-family homes.

"Even though it's apartment buildings, its pretty nice around here," Fairview resident Georgette Bitting told News12. "I have an 8-year-old and we love it here, and this is the first time I've heard anything like this happening."

Anyone with information on the shooting can call the Greenburgh Police Department at 914-682-5331.
