A White Plains man was shot to death in a stairwell of a Greenburgh apartment complex Thursday night, according to Greenburgh Police.

Joseph Smith III, 46, was found around 8 p.m. in the sixth-floor stairwell after officers responded to a call of shots fired at 100 Manhattan Ave., said Capt. Frank Farina.

First-responding officers discovered Smith with a gunshot wound to the chest. Greenburgh EMS personnel worked to revive Smith while transporting him to Westchester Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, Farina said.

Greenburgh detectives responded to the scene to conduct a crime scene investigation, he added.

"We are vigorously investigating this crime, and following all leads," Farina said.

An autopsy will be performed by the Westchester County Medical Examiner Friday.

Police are seeking the assistance of the public and ask anyone who may have witnessed the incident or may have information relevant to the incident, contact Greenburgh detectives at 914-989-1725. All calls will be kept confidential.
