NEWBURGH - A man was shot and killed in Newburgh Monday evening, a day before community members and the police department were to join up for a national anti-crime event.

Police say Deandric Little, 29, of the Town of Newburgh, walked into St. Luke's Hospital on Dubois Street with a gunshot wound around 8 p.m.

Family members say Little was an ex-convict who was just released last month. They blamed the shooting on his girlfriend's ex.

Authorities did not confirm that account, release a motive or name a suspect, but a source alleges that Little was a local heroin dealer.

Little, who was seriously wounded in the attack, walked several blocks to St. Luke’s for help — only to succumb to his injuries later on at Westchester Medical Center.

Earlier, Newburgh Police Chief Dan Cameron had called for increased efforts against crime.
