Richey collapsed on the sidewalk around 5:10 p.m., police said. He was found unconscious and unresponsive at the intersection with multiple gunshots to the torso. Richey was rushed to a local hospital, but he did not survive.
No arrests have been made. Three men are being sought. Police initially only had a description available for one of the suspects. He was last seen wearing a red shirt and grey sweatpants.
Richey was remembered as a great kid and a fixture around the neighborhood. He was at a community event Saturday with officers from the 75 Precinct. Richey had just gotten his first job, a summer position at a community center. #NewyorkPoliceDepartment #NYPD #NYPDSFinest
