Boy, 15, charged in fatal broad-daylight shooting in NYC: cops

A 15-year-old boy was charged with murder in the broad-daylight deadly shooting of a man in the Bronx earlier this month, cops said. 

The teen, whose name was not released because of his age, showed up at the 46th Precinct with his mother Wednesday and surrendered in connection to the 11:30 a.m. June 7 slaying of Rafael Jimenez, 29, authorities said. 

In addition to the murder rap, he was also charged with manslaughter and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, cops said. 

Jimenez was rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Jimenez, of Brooklyn, was standing on Walton Avenue near East 183rd Street in Fordham Heights when three males got out of a black Volkswagen and approached him, police said. 

The teen then opened fire, striking the man in the head, authorities said.

Jimenez was rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, cops said.

The motive for the slaying remained unclear Thursday.
