The NYPD recently released information about two men who are wanted for a murder from January.

According to the police, a drive-by shooting took place on Jan. 22 when two males opened fire and killed Shamel Amos, 33, of Richmond Plaza, near a warehouse at 805 E. 139th St. in Mott Haven.

An investigation revealed that the shooters allegedly exited the warehouse and entered a dark-color Honda CRV. Once in the car, they pulled up on Amos, 33, and the passenger fired a handgun multiple times hitting Amos in the torso and legs. They fled the scene in the Honda CRV, which had a Florida registration and distinctive stickers on the trunk.

EMS rushed Amos to Lincoln Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

No arrests have been made, thus far, in the ongoing investigation, police said.
