Shooting victim refuses to back down after being struck during argument in Bronx

A tough-as-nails gunshot victim refused to back down during an argument in the Bronx — even after taking a bullet to the foot, newly released video shows. The surveillance clip shows the two men arguing outside 140 West Fordham Road in University Heights just before 3:15 a.m. Monday, according to cops. One of the men, sporting an Allan Iverson 76ers jersey, is seen pulling a gun and firing off a round, striking the 28-year-old man in the foot. The victim briefly stops in pain but then walks it off, leaving a trail of bloody footsteps as he limps toward the armed man, still arguing. Cops said the dispute started in Fokkus Room & Cucine nearby and continued out onto the street. The unknown gunman took off in a white sedan, cops said. The victim was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital by private means. No arrests have been made.

The Brooklyn Nets star Simmons decided to be petty on Twitter, “liking” a couple of tweets dissing the Philadelphia 76ers and James Harden, whom Simmons was traded for in February. Simmons “liked” one tweet calling Harden “washed” and “out of shape” and another tweet from Skip Bayless criticizing Harden and saying that Simmons would eventually make their trade look foolish for the 76ers.
