Last night, a 14-year-old boy and a 20-year-old man were shot while skating at the ice skating rink in Bryant Park. Cops say they have now taken a 16-year-old suspect in for questioning; the suspect has been identified by various media outlets as Bronx resident Corey Dunton.
According to the Post, Dunton reportedly refused to answer questions and asked for a lawyer. “He thinks he’s a gangster,” a source told Post, adding that cops believe he may be a member of the Bloods. “He think’s he’s a real tough guy.”
Police told the News that Javier Contreras, 20, is believed to have been the shooter's target; he was shot in the arm and hip allegedly over his Marmot Mammoth “biggie” jacket. Contreras is expected to recover. Adonis Mera, 14, was an innocent bystander who got caught in the crossfire; he was hit in the back, and it is unclear whether he will walk again.
Dunton appears to have been writing about the aftermath of the incident on his Facebook. You can see screenshots of those messages, including several in which he says police are banging on his door.
