Default Re: Innocent woman caught in crossfire as gunfire erupts downtown

Cops believe these two men were involved in downtown shooting

Police are looking for these suspects after a shooting in Battery Park on Monday.

Police believe the two men pictured may have been involved in a broad daylight shooting near Battery Park that left two people — including an innocent bystander — shot, authorities said.

Investigators stopped short of calling the men suspects, but said they may have some knowledge of the incident or know the shooter or his intended target.

An innocent, 34-year-old woman and a 40-year-old man believed to be involved in the battle were struck by gunfire when the shooter opened fire near Battery Place and Washington Street at around 3:30 p.m.

Police said the incident happened when two men selling tickets to the Statue of Liberty got into a fight and one of them pulled out a gun.

The woman who was hurt took a bullet to the left knee and was taken to New York Presbyterian Downtown Hospital in stable condition.

Cops believe the male victim was one of the ticket sellers. They found him in a car on its way to Brooklyn when the vehicle’s driver was pulled over for driving erratically over the Brooklyn Bridge.

Police then escorted the car to the hospital when they realized the passenger had been shot.

The man was held and then released — he is not one of the two sought for questioning, police said.

The driver was later arrested for driving with a suspended license.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
