NYPD cops charge man in the stray-bullet shooting that wounded a 15-year-old girl as she was doing her homework in the Queensbridge Houses
Police have made an arrest in the case of a Queens teenager who was wounded by a stray gunshot unleashed by a singing gunman, a police captain told the Daily News.
Captain Miguel Iglesias of Police Service Area 9 said a man has been arrested on suspicion of firing the round that struck Amy Sanchez, 15, in the hand as she did her homework in an apartment in the Queensbridge Houses about 5:15 a.m. Sunday.
A resident told the Daily News the shooter was singing as he slowly squeezed off five rounds. One shot pierced the window in Amy's apartment; she ducked, a relative said, but it ricocheted of the wall and struck her.
Police said Day Bryant, 37, of Manhattan, was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment. He has yet to be arraigned. Police sources said he has eight prior arrests. It was not clear what spurred the gunplay.
