Police arrested a man in Florida who is suspected of shooting three bystanders in New York’s Times Square.
Farrakhan Muhammad, 31, was taken into custody on Wednesday while eating lunch in a McDonald’s parking lot near Jacksonville, police said.
“While there is no joy today, there is justice,” New York City Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said.
Muhammad is suspected of wounding the three victims, including a 4-year-old, with stray bullets during a dispute in Times Square at about 5 p.m. Saturday.
Wendy Magrinat, a 23-year-old tourist visiting from Rhode Island, was shot in the leg. A 43-year-old woman from New Jersey was shot in the foot. The 4-year-old girl, from Brooklyn, was also shot in the leg.
Police say Muhammad was aiming for his brother, but investigators still are not sure what the motive was. He said the brothers apparently both sold CDs in the Times Square area.
