Cops Hunt Suspects in Xmas Shooting


Still baffled by a shooting in the northwest Bronx at the very end of Christmas Day, cops have released a photo that you would think would make little difference.
Nevertheless, this guy, believed to be 16 to 18 years old, thin and wearing a blue “Varsity” jacket with beige sleeves, is suspected of having a dispute with a 16-year-old kid on the corner of Bainbridge Avenue and East 212th Street at 12:05 a.m. December 26. A second suspect is believed to have shot at the victim several times, wounding him in the leg.
