MAYHEM

Two Shot in NYC’s Bryant Park

A 16-year-old boy has been taken into custoday after he allegedly shot two people Saturday night in New York City’s Bryant Park, a famous tourist destination in midtown Manhattan. Police say the gunman had told Javier Conteras, 20, of the Bronx, to hand over his coat, and when he was refused, the suspect left and returned with a gun. He shot onto the rink packed with around 150 skaters, hitting his intended target—and an innocent 14-year-old boy, Adonis Mera, of Manhattan. Mera’s family said he had “no feelings from the waist down.” Witnesses described the scene afterward as “mayhem,” as the gunman reportedly fled the scene afterward.
