Friday, police announced that an ex-con who had been arrested for double murder had been fatally shot outside a Bronx nightclub.
On Thursday night, while Jeffrey Pierre, 42, argued with another guy outside the Last Stop Bar & Grill on White Plains Road at E. 240th St. in Wakefield, a gunman approached them from behind and shot Pierre in the back.
Upon arriving at a 911 call at 11:52 p.m., police discovered Pierre lying on the ground with multiple gunshot wounds. His death occurred shortly after he was taken to Jacobi Medical Center. It was unclear whether or not the gunman knew Pierre or the other man. Police said the suspect drove off in a grey vehicle.
According to the documents, the victim spent three terms in a state jail
They say that in May of 2014, he tracked down and killed two Bronx males who had attempted to carjack him. Outside the Dyer Avenue Deli Grocery in Eastchester, Jermaine Johnson and Kaiison Lewis approached Pierre, who was driving a Mercedes-Benz SUV.
They attempted to steal Pierre’s automobile, but he turned the tables and chased them back to Johnson’s car, where he fired several bullets. Pierre has been arrested for murder and criminal possession of a firearm after he allegedly killed the would-be carjackers.
A mistrial was declared in his first trial. According to the Bronx District Attorney’s Office, Pierre’s second trial resulted in an acquittal on the murder allegation but a conviction and nine-year term for gun possession. In May of 2021, he was granted parole.
