NYPD hunts suspect after 2-year-old shot in the Bronx

The toddler was taken to Jacobi Medical Center where he is currently listed in stable condition.


New York City police have reported a disturbing incident where a 2-year-old boy was shot in broad daylight on Saturday.

The shooting occurred at the intersection of East Fordham Road and the Grand Concourse around 1:45 pm, according to the New York Post. The child sustained a gunshot wound to the right buttock during the incident.

Following the incident, the child was taken to Jacobi Medical Center, where he is currently listed in stable condition.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams briefly visited the crime scene and engaged with investigators to learn more about the circumstances surrounding the shooting.

According to NYPD, the suspected perpetrator is described as a man in his 30s wearing a green hooded sweatshirt, a black jacket with fur, light blue jeans, and possibly red sneakers. Witnesses observed the suspect fleeing the scene in a northbound direction along Crescent Avenue.

The shooting took place outside of a Capital One bank, with glass shattered by gunfire at another bank across the street.

“We don’t know if there was a crossfire or multiple people [involved]. We don’t know yet,” an NYPD spokesperson said. 

The incident is yet another in the growing number of senseless acts of violence being carried out throughout New York City.
