NEW YORK (AP/PIX 11) — A 16-year-old Bronx teenager accused in a shooting at Manhattan’s Bryant Park ice skating rink has apologized for hurting an innocent bystander.
Cory Dunton, 16, has been charged with attempted murder, assault, criminal possession of a weapon and other counts in connection to the Nov.9 shooting that injured two people.
Authorities say Dunton opened fire while trying to steal an expensive parka.
The coat’s owner was hit in the leg. A 14-year-old bystander also was struck and seriously injured.
Dunton said in a handwritten statement turned over to the defense Tuesday that he was sorry for hurting an innocent bystander.
