Motorcyclist fatally shot, moped rider grazed in head in Manhattan gas station drive-by

A 30-year-old motorcyclist was killed and a moped rider was grazed in the head in a drive-by shooting at a Manhattan gas station early Wednesday, police said.

Roberto Perez was on his motorcycle, possibly about to get gas at the service station at Ninth Ave. and W. 207th St. in Inwood, when someone opened fire from what appeared to be a white sedan about 1:15 a.m., cops said.

Perez, struck in the upper body, was rushed by medics to St. Barnabas Hospital but could not be saved.

A 24-year-old man on a moped raced from the scene but stopped a block away on Tenth Ave. when he realized he had been grazed in the head.

He drove himself to BronxCare Health System, previously known as Bronx Lebanon Hospital, and is in stable condition. He told police he has no connection to the motorcyclist.

There were no immediate arrests.

Police were at the scene Wednesday looking for surveillance video.
