3 Bystanders Wounded, Including Child, in Times Square Shooting: NYPD

The victims, who police do not believe are related, suffered gunshot wounds and were taken to Bellevue Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries

By NBC New York, May 8, 2021

Three people were hospitalized Saturday evening after a shooting in Times Square left the youngest victim, a 4-year-old girl, injured and started the NYPD on a manhunt for the gunman responsible.

NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea confirmed at an evening press conference that the three victims were unintended targets of the shooter and were not related to one another.

The young girl was struck in the leg, a 23-year-old woman was hit in her thigh and a 43-year-old woman was shot in the foot, police said. All three victims were taken to nearby Bellevue Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

One person of interest was being sought by police for the shooting — he was identified in a surveillance image distributed by police late Saturday.

Shots were fired right around 5 p.m. after a reported dispute between a group of men, Shea explained. Nearby witnesses told police the men were arguing when one pulled out a gun and started shooting, striking the innocent bystanders.

Uniformed officers were near the scene of the shooting – W 44th Street and 7th Avenue – when shots rang out. People in the area were advised to expect delays as police closed off 7th Avenue between 45th and 43rd Streets.

“The first person shot is a 4-year-old female from Brooklyn. She was shot in the leg and it is believed she is undergoing surgery,” Shea said. He later added that the girl was shopping for toys with her family at the time of the shooting.
