THE BRONX — Dane Richardson, a man wanted in a pair of fatal shootings in the Bronx, was arrested Wednesday, police said.

According to authorities, 36-year-old Richardson is connected to a shooting in November that left a 19-year-old dead and a second man wounded, as well as an August shooting that left a 26-year-old man dead.

Around 9:15 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 17, cops responded to a 911 call of two men shot near the Soundview Houses on the corner of Randall and Rosedale avenues in the Soundview section of the Bronx.

Responding officers discovered 19-year-old Stephon Brown shot in the back and a 21-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the arm, officials said. Both men were rushed to the hospital, where Brown was pronounced dead, police said.

Back on August 18, just before 4 a.m., police responded to a 911 call of a person shot on Commonwealth Avenue in the Clason Point neighborhood, according to officials.

Cops arrived on the scene to find 26-year-old Nestor Ventura with multiple gunshot wounds to the chest, authorities said. Ventura was taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.
