Teen arrested for shooting woman through apartment peephole: NYPD


UPPER WEST SIDE, Manhattan — A 17-year-old boy was arrested Thursday, more than a month after he shot a 37-year-old woman through the peephole of her Manhattan apartment, police said.

Police sources told PIX11 News the name of the suspect won’t be released because he is a minor.

The woman was shot in the eye about 7:40 p.m. on Nov. 1, police said. She heard a knock at the door of her Columbus Avenue apartment and was struck when she looked through her peephole to see who was there, police said.

An NYPD spokesperson said after the incident that the woman did not appear to be the intended target.

The teen was charged with attempted murder, NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said in a tweet.
