BRONX, N.Y. (WABC) -- A man who checked himself into a Bronx hospital overnight Wednesday is wanted in a triple shooting in Midtown, police said.

According to the New York City Police Department, the suspect is 27-year-old Vincent Arcona, one of the men wanted for questioning in the Nov. 9 shooting.

The man was using an alias when he walked into Bronx Lebanon Hospital at 4 a.m. seeking medication and a psychological evaluation.

Hospital staff recognized him as one of the two men wanted in the Midtown shooting and called police.

The man was not carrying any ID, so police had to first confirm his identity.

The shooting happened Monday at about 6:15 a.m. in the stairwell of a subway station near the McDonald's on West 34th Street and Eighth Avenue. One man was killed and two other injured. Police released surveillance photos of the suspects shortly afterwards.
