THE BRONX — A young boy was struck by a bullet in a Bronx park on Friday when a shooter unleashed a round intended for someone else, police said.
The alleged gunman, 27, turned himself in Friday night regarding the West Farms attack, police said.
The suspect faced charges of attempted murder in the second degree and assault, ABC 7 reported.
The gunfire broke out at 5:49 p.m. Friday afternoon at Daly Avenue and West 180th Street, inside Vidalia Park, police said.
The bullets struck a 34-year-old man, as well as the 3-year-old boy, and both were rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital for non life-threatening injuries, the FDNY said. The older man was the gunman's intended target, and the shooter had been in a dispute with the victim earlier in the afternoon, the NY Daily News reported.
An investigation was ongoing, police said, and the NYPD could not answer questions regarding the shooter's motive, identity or charges on Sunday.
