NEW YORK — He may be disabled, but he was still able to kill.
A wheelchair-bound gunman pumped 17 bullets into a man in the Bronx in what cops describe as a drug-related beef.
Cops say the victim, 28-year-old Kevin Thomas was gunned down after getting into a scrape with a group of men outside a housing project in neighborhood of Mott Haven. As he tried to run, a man wheeled the bespectacled gunman forward and he opened fire, riddling Thomas with bullets.
Investigators found crack cocaine stashed in between Thomas’s buttocks.
Police say Thomas had a lengthy rap sheet and had survived two prior shootings in 2015 and 2011 in the Bronx. He had also been eyed as the gunman in two other shootings in 2011 and 2007, the Daily News reported.
Authorities say the man who was pushing the shooter’s wheelchair could also face charges as an accomplice to a crime.
