Police Arrest Luis Moore, Who Allegedly Shot Two Children In The Bronx

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The New York City Police Department say they’ve nabbed the man suspected of shooting a 2-year-old girl in the head and a 5-year-old girl in the neck.

Police arrested Luis Moore, 23, of 2130 Strang Avenue in the Bronx.

The shooting took place Monday evening.

Cops say that at about 7:46 p.m., they responded to a 911 call. Apparently a group of people were standing around East 181st Street near Daly Avenue when a gunman opened fire.

Three people were hit, including a 20-year-old who was shot in the back. The 20-year-old may have been the intended target. He’s in stable condition.

The 2-year-old girl and 5-year-old were also shot, and were rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital. The 2-year-old was in critical condition.

Moore faces attempted murder, assault, criminal possession of a firearm and criminal use of a firearm charges.

If convicted, what is the appropriate punishment in this case? Sound off in our comments section.

    I wonder if the suspect was white,would people on here respond differently?

    1. Robert says:

      look at all the shooting news from this past weekend. Find one single white suspect from the 40+ shootings. Then maybe your hypothetical situation would make more sense

      What does race have to do with anything, when you have no respect for human life, i don’t care what color or race u are, black, white, yellow, red, pink or blue, you deserve the punishment coming to u. By they way i am black.

  12. Walter Chang says:

    Luis Moore of the Bronx should be branded as a coward. Send him to prison and let Bubba get a hold of him. He will know what is pain for life.

  19. The Facts says:

    If this guy did the crime he will pay the price for it. It must take a real genius to shoot little girls.

  20. Soap says:

    Send him to Cuba.

  21. Peter says:

    one bullet to the head will do !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. harlem going ham says:

    ok crash dummy, when is your first test?

  23. bullett says:

    Their all tough guys with a gun, I say then send them off too Afghanistan and will see how tough they really are.

    1. Brian says:

      Its spelled “They’re” tough and “to” afghinstan. Genius u cant give people willing to shoot american children a gun and ship him off to a foreign county to represent us. The military wouldnt take him and u dishonor our men by even suggesting he is worthy of their company. How detached are you? Serving this country is a priviledge not an obligation. Our men are there because as free citizens they chose to be, there is no draft. Frankly why am i wasting my breath on an ignorant d*uche? Sigh, here’s the thing. This guy clearly displays a level of depreved indifference necessary to have him removed from the general population. I’m not so naieve to think he’ll sudddenly develop social skills in prison and for that reason I submit my suggestion of life in prison with the possibility of parole in 35 years. Only because none of the children has died yet, should that change, or if the 2 year old loses mental capacity, no parole.

      1. Tommy Lent says:

        Brian, I think Bullett (a “genius” as you describe him) was merely making a point that this punk is just that, a punk, and without that gun he is not very tough and that if he was in Afghanistan he wouldn’t be facing little kids on a street corner, but adversaries who themselves are caring weapons a lot more potent than a gun.

        By the way, since you seemed to enjoyed slamming the Genius because he used bad grammar (as millions do. Just read any blog), I think I’ll do a little slamming myself. For instance:

        “Our men are there”. Actually, our men and WOMEN are there. This is the 21st century, whether you like it or not.

        “Depreved” = Depraved

        “Naieve” = Naïve

        “Wouldn’t” = Wouldn’t

        Although I agree with most of what you say, you need to get off your high horse.

      2. Tommy Lent says:

        BTW, I meant to say “Carrying”, not “Caring”. That was a typo.

    2. Tommy Lent says:

      See below comments Bullett 🙂

    …so what’s your point?

  25. jim says:

    remind me again why we don’t just execute these animals on the spot.

    1. Brian says:

      jim: because we aren’t China, Libia or Syria. In the ‘States we have to convict people first. It sounds like the NY DA’s office is going to have all the evidence they’ll need to take him down in a civilized, non-vigilante way, so no worries.

  26. nyckat says:

    Those lips will be prized in jail!!! thank for posting his address, hopefully all his victims will loot his home while he gets a free vacation thanks to tax payers..kill him now- wait shoot him where he shot those poor babies- them let him HURT

  27. milo says:

    Shoot him in the head like he did that baby. But first graze his neck and shoot him in the back.

  28. is it a girl or boy says:
