A semi-automatic pistol was recovered near the shooting site in a mailbox. The suspects remain at large.
Garrett is the city's 31st homicide victim of the year and first since German tourist Mechthild Schröer was shot dead when caught in a crossfire between gun-toting revelers in the Theater District on Aug. 8.
