Hwangbum Yang, a chef at the Modern restaurant at the Museum of Modern Art, was shot in the chest and killed two blocks from his home in Riverdale on April 19 as he was returning from work. According to the New York Post, two Bronx men have been arrested for the crime.

Police said Dominick Davis and Alejandro Campos shot Yang for his iPhone. The phone eventually lead police to the two men, who were arrested Friday for murder, robbery, criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of stolen property.
