Police Arrest 16-Year-Old In Connection To Bronx Sidewalk Shooting

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Police have arrested a teen they say fired shots at a group with a young girl on a Bronx sidewalk.

The NYPD arrested 16-year-old Edgar Garcia and say he's a member of a Bronx-based gang. They say shooting stems from an ongoing dispute with a Manhattan-based gang.

The incident happened last week, and dramatic surveillance video shows the gunman opening fire in the middle of the street in broad daylight, sending an innocent little girl fleeing wearing a blue backpack for her life.

Garcia has been charged with attempted murder, attempted assault, and reckless endangerment, all as an adult.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, on Twitter @NYPDTips or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

All calls are strictly confidential.
