QUEENS — A man allegedly planning to flee the country was arrested in the fatal shooting of a 19-year-old woman at a Bronx nightclub Monday, sources told PIX11 News Tuesday.
Domingo Berroa, a 32-year-old Bronx man, was arrested at Kennedy Airport with a one-way ticket to the Dominican Republic, allegedly attempting to flee the country, sources said.
According to authorities, a call came in just after 7 a.m. Monday for reports of people with gunshot wounds inside a lounge located on Jerome Avenue, near North Street, in the University Heights section.
The victim, later identified as Wendolin Ortiz, 19, was shot and rushed to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead, police said.
Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison said the 19-year-old woman had survived a shooting in the Bronx just months prior to Monday’s incident.
She’s believed to have been an innocent bystander in Monday’s shooting, sources said. A fight broke out between two people in the bar. One of them took a semi-automatic gun out and fired. The teen was sitting at a table a distance away from the people who were fighting.
Two men, ages 20 and 30, were also hospitalized after being shot Monday.
