A Knicks fan was killed and another injured in an apparent shooting in Westchester, N.Y., on Monday, and police are still searching for a suspect in the shooting, police said.
The Knicks tweeted that the player involved in the crime has been identified as 21-year-old Daniel Givens, a point guard on the Knicks’ roster.
A statement on the team’s official Twitter account said: “Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Daniel Gavens and our fans.
Our thoughts and sympathies are also with the New York Knicks organization, our players and coaches and their families during this time of grief.”
A witness told ABC News that Givins was walking in a parking lot near the intersection of East 57th Street and West 66th Avenue when someone approached him.
The man pulled out a gun and pointed it at Givans, according to the witness.
Givings was shot multiple times in the chest and died at the scene, according the witness, who asked not to be identified because he was not authorized to speak publicly.
The witness said the shooter then fled the scene.
The Knicks did not identify the player or the person of interest in the investigation.
