NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr. announced the indictment Tuesday of a teenager accused in the shooting of two young men at the Bryant Park skating rink.
Corey Dunton, of the Bronx, was charged as an adult with attempted murder, assault, reckless endangerment, and criminal possession of a weapon, police said. The judge ordered him held without bail.
Dunton’s father had no comment as he left court and neither did the teen’s attorney.
“I have no comment. The record is public and stands for itself,” Sam Roberts told CBS 2’s Janelle Burrell.
The 16-year-old is accused of shooting 20-year-old Javier Contreras, who sustained multiple injuries, after Contreras refused to give up his Marmot winter coat.
“I fell on the ground and he kept on shooting,” Contreras told CBS 2 exclusively after getting out of the hospital, adding that he has a bullet lodged in his thigh and has months of therapy ahead of him.
“I got shot in my right hand, my left hand, my right leg and my hip,” he said.
