Roosevelt Island Teens Shoot Rock From Sling Shot Hitting Woman On East Promenade Near 510 Breezeway - Apprehended By RIOC Public Safety And Released To Parents

Received report that a woman was shot with a BB gun yesterday. I asked Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) Acting Public Safety Director Kevin Brown what happened.

A RIOC spokesperson replied today:

At about 1 pm yesterday afternoon, four youths (three 12 year olds and 1 thirteen year old) apparently shot a female victim with what appeared to be a BB-Gun on the seawall opposite 510 breezeway. All youths were apprehended and bought into PSD with their parents. The victim sustained a small bruise on her leg. EMS was refused at the scene by the complainant. Subsequent investigation revealed that the youth used a sling shot and a small rock. The youths were released to their parents. NYPD was on scene and notified. The youths are island residents.
