Three Shot In Times Square Including Four-Year-Old Girl

New York’s Times Square was temporarily cordoned off on Saturday after at least three people were injured in a shooting, according to NBC News, citing police. The suspect, pictured below, was caught on camera.

The victims, a four-year-old girl, a 23-year-old and a 43-year-old received non-fatal wounds after one of four men involved in an altercation drew a gun around 5 p.m. and opened fire. All of the victims were bystanders, while the little girl underwent surgery and is expected to survive.

“Two shots. They was bleeding the toddler was bleeding and the mom was crying,” said one Times Square vendor.

It is unclear what the dispute was over which led to the shooting. No suspects have been detained. The shooting came just one hour before a scheduled rally in memory of Daunte Wright, a black man who was fatally shot by a police officer in Minnesota in early April. Police have not linked the shooting to the event at this time.

There have been 416 shootings in New York City through May 2 of this year, up 83% from this time last year when everyone was locked down, accordsing to police data.

“A child in one of the top tourist spots in the world on a spring Saturday isn’t safe from this nation’s gun violence epidemic,” said local TV reporter Steve Keeley of Fox29.

The shooting comes amid a spate of attacks against asians committed primarily by black suspects. Last Sunday, two Asian women were assaulted by a black woman wielding a hammer – leading to one of the victims, a 31-year-old Taiwanese woman, being hospitalized with a head wound.
