Two girls and younger youngsters shot lifeless in Instances Sq., New York Metropolis – suspect is presently at giant
Roommate, unfortunately there was another shooting today and this time it happened in New York’s Times Square, where a shooter opened fire and wounded two women and a toddler. The suspect of the Times Square shooting is reportedly still at large – this is the second shooting to have taken place today after an earlier shooting incident at Miami’s Aventura Mall.
According to the New York Police Department (NYPD), a 4-year-old girl who was shopping in Times Square with her family was shot dead in Times Square along with two other women who were women. The shooting reportedly took place on West 45th Street and 7th Avenue – in the middle of New York City’s popular tourist area.
NYPD said the three victims were accidentally shot after a nearby argument between four men that exploded in gunfire. The response to the shooting was quick as an officer was nearby and heard the five shots. It is believed that of the four men, only one actually opened fire, which struck the toddler and the two women.
New York Police Commissioner Dermot Shea confirmed that no suspects have currently been arrested for the Times Square shooting. However, the authorities are currently looking for someone of interest to be consulted. Shea also said the 4-year-old is “a very brave girl who buys toys when she is shot.”
That shootout is the second in hours since five people were injured earlier in the day in a shooting in Miami, Florida at the Aventura Mall – and earlier this week, a sixth grader opened fire in an Idaho middle school.
