Man escapes death by inches in would-be robbery
Antonio Martinez escaped death by the smallest of margins Monday night. Martinez, 47, says he was sitting with friends outside a home on South William Street in Newburgh around 11:45 p.m. Monday when they were approached by the four masked gunmen. He says the men demanded money, and when his friends said they had none, one of the suspect?s put a gun to the back of his head and fired. Luckily, Martinez moved his head and the bullet just grazed him. Police say the assailants then took off running. No arrests have been made. Anyone with information is asked to contact Newburgh police at 845-561-3131
