Two wounded in Co-op City shooting

By David Greene

BRONX, NEW YORK, January 16- Two people were wounded when gunfire erupted on the grounds of 140 Einstein Loop in Co-op City, on January 13.

EMS was called at 12:08 p.m., and reported that two victims were transported to Jacobi Hospital. A source at the FDNY stated, "The two patients looked to be serious, but didn't appear to be life threatening."

EMS records show a 17-year-old male was shot in the leg, but no information was available on the second, more serious victim.

One resident fumed, "They say, 'See something, say something,' but when you call they interrogate you like you are guilty of something or treat you like you don't know what your talking about."

The resident claimed she has attempted to give such information to both the Co-op City Public Safety and the NYPD, when shootings take place, now she just stays away from the window.
The woman claimed that drivers on the Hutchinson River Parkway have been taking shots at the building-- as vehicles pass the complex on a somewhat frequent basis.
According to a source close to the investigation, the suspect in the double shooting was described as a male Black, dressed in all black, who reportedly fled the scene in a grey mini van.
