Four people were injured, one critically, in a drive-by shooting in Westchester that police said could potentially be gang-related.
Shots rang out at approximately 4:15 p.m. on Thursday, June 11 at the intersection of Elm Street and Oak Street in Yonkers, a police spokesperson said, after a passenger in a passing vehicle stuck his head out of a window and opened fire in an incident caught on video.

Yonkers Police Commissioner John Mueller said the incident appears to be related to gang activity and was not a random act of violence.
Officials said that there are “several persons of interest in custody” and a weapon has been recovered during the initial investigation.
One woman was shot in the liver and leg, police said, two others suffered gunshot wounds to the calf and ankle, while the fourth was struck by shrapnel.
Each victim was over the age of 18, police said. All were taken to area hospitals for treatment.
The shooting came less than two months after a 6-year-old was shot in the chest down the block.

“We've gone so far that it's the law-abiding citizens who live in the street, 99 percent of them, who frankly can't leave their home because there's a body count on Elm Street of those who've been shot and that's unacceptable,” Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano said.
"The Yonkers Police will do everything in our power to deliver these violent actors into the Criminal Justice System,” Mueller added.
“But that is no longer enough – the system must hold them accountable; the safety of our communities and residents depend on it.”

Jake Connor details family reasons for wanting to face England for All Stars
JAKE Connor hopes to boost his England chances by beating them as he finally gets the chance to represent Trinidad.
The Hull full-back, who has five caps for his country of birth, admits it will be ‘a bit weird’ to face Shaun Wane’s side for the Combined Nations All Stars on Friday.2 Jake Connor will play for the All Stars after previously starring for England
But he is determined to do both himself and his family proud as he connects with his Caribbean roots.
Connor said: “It got brought up in a conversation a couple of weeks ago and I like the idea. Knowing I wasn’t going to be in the England squad, I thought, ‘Why not?’
“I can represent my dad’s heritage, which is Trinidad. So it’s not just for missing out that I put my name forward.
“But I had a conversation with Shaun about what I can do to maybe put my foot in the door for England. I know what I’ve got to do.
“My granddad was from Trinidad and while my dad was born here, he still has that heritage in him. So it’s probably the only chance I’m going to get to represent Trinidad.
“It’s something I’ll probably never get to do again. It’s going to be strange playing against England but I want to play in big games.2 Wigan's Jackson Hastings will co-captain the Combined Nations All StarsCredit: SWPIX.COM
“And I like the concept. It’s a good test for England to see where they’re at and I wouldn’t get to play with some of the players at club level.”
Connor, 26, is not the only member of Tim Sheens’ side looking to further his England ambitions. All Stars co-captain Jackson Hastings does too.
The Wigan star, who qualifies as his grandmother was born in Plymouth, said: “My goal has never changed. I've never shied away from it.
“Waney knows where I'm at, he's not silly and he listens to all the interviews I do and he goes to the games.
“I get the chance to play in front of him on Friday and he gets to see me live at ground level.”THE LATEST IN RUGBY LEAGUEPortugal 2 France 2Watch Ronaldo and Benzema get braces in thriller as they both progressGermany 2 Hungary 2 Late Goretzka strike saves Germans' bacon to set up England crackerLive BlogEUR WE GOAll the latest news and updates with summer's big tournament reaching fever pitchPRIDE PRIZEFellow gay football player thanks Nassib for being first NFL star to come outDUNKED ONLeBron's tweet about teammate's weed arrest goes viralLive BlogGUNNERS LATESTArsenal interested in Calvert-Lewin, Sterling and Mahrez transfer latest
