On August 8, police say 27-year-old Gloria Nartey was killed when she was caught in the crossfire of a shooting as she was walking just a few blocks from her home on South 12 Avenue in Mount Vernon.
The body of a Mount Vernon woman, apparently dead from an insulin overdose, was found in an SUV outside a NYPD narcotics facility in the Bronx.
