The two men targeted in a drive-by shooting in the West End of New Rochelle knew the shooters. Police have determined that the incident was a retaliation for a previous incident. Jason Picarelli (tattoo on arm, left) and Brian Dee (facing camera, right) robbed a group of drug dealers in the Bronx, source say. The drug dealers were able to track the pair down to a house at Union and 8th and fire five shots into the house.
Dee has now been arrested by NRPD for his involved in the drug dealer robbery and is said to be cooperating. Picarelli remains free but likely not for long, sources say.
There is “For Rent” sign in the window of the house they were renting on Union Avenue.
