A man was shot and killed Tuesday in the parking lot of a large apartment complex in Mount Vernon.

The shooting happened at 3:30 p.m. near the intersection of East Lincoln and Sheridan Avenues.

Police say one person was taken into custody, but have not yet disclosed a motive for the shooting.

The victim was a 26-year old man from the Bronx. A weapon was recovered at the scene.

There wre initial reports that the victim was a teenager, prompting the Mount Vernon school district to issue a statement saying it did not know whether he was a Mount Vernon high school student.

But the report was unfounded.
