EAST VILLAGE, Manhattan (WABC) — A man was fatally shot Friday morning in the East Village after arguing with another man on a bicycle.

It happened just after 9:00 am on East 4th Street between Avenue B and C

A 42-year-old man was shot in the stomach and leg.

He was rushed to Bellevue Hospital, where he later died.

The victim was arrested earlier in January, just one door away from where he was fatally shot.

He was charged with punching a 23-year-old woman in the face at her East Village home.
