Once there, Djukic waited in the vehicle as George exited the vehicle and approached the victim who was on Kensico Avenue. He then fired a handgun multiple times, striking the victim.

George then ran back to and re-entered the vehicle where Djukic was waiting in the driver’s seat and immediately drove off.  

The victim was taken to Westchester Medical Center suffering gunshot wounds to the hand and back. He later died in surgery.
