New York Crime Stoppers released security footage showing one of the suspects accused of shooting a dad and his daughter who got caught in the crossfire while trick-or-treating in Harlem.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, a 36-year-old woman shot in the right arm during Saturday’s incident, off of Lenox Avenue between 116th and 117th streets. A 39-year-old man and his 8-year-old daughter were also wounded. WCBS reports that the father suffered a gunshot wound to his right arm while his daughter was shot in her right leg.
The father told The New York Post that he and his daughters, ages 6 and 8, were walking to CVS to meet his wife when he spotted a man with a gun. Moments later, shots rang out.
“I hear shots. I pushed my youngest out of the way and then grab her but she’s yelling, ‘My leg!’,” he told the news outlet.
The father said his daughter’s shin bone was shattered. It’s unclear how much surgery or rehabilitation she will require. The man’s younger child was unharmed, the Post reports.
According to WABC, police believe all three shooting victims were hit by stray bullets that were fired by the same gun. The suspected gunman was reportedly wearing all black and fled after the shooting.
No arrests have been made as of Tuesday. Police said they believe at least two suspects were involved in the shooting.
