A 16-year-old from the Bronx was charged Sunday evening in the shooting of two young men at a crowded New York City skating rink on Saturday night.

Corey Dunton is being charged as an adult with attempted murder, assault, reckless endangerment, and criminal possession of a weapon, according to police. Shots rang out just after 11 p.m. Saturday, when a gunman opened fire and struck a 14-year-old boy, Adonis Mera, and a 20-year-old unidentified man at the Bryant Park skating rink in Midtown Manhattan. The shooter fled the scene as people took cover, NBC News reports.

Dunton allegedly returned with a gun after one of the victims refused to hand over his coat.

Joe Carella, a spokesman for Bryant Park Corporation, the not-for-profit company that privately manages the park, told NBC News the incident is uncommon at the park.

The answer isn't "ok lets racially profile and stop every black male and illegally search them in clear violation of the 4th amendment because of this one 16yo boy"

Its more like.. why does this young man have such a low respect for his and everyone elses life?..

This is just the beginning in light of the curtailment of the stop and frisk policy. As criminals become more comfortable carrying guns there will be more incidents like this.
