Video shows arrest of 15-year-old immigrant wanted for shooting a tourist and firing at cops in Times Square
ยท Feb 10, 2024 ยท

Earlier this week, during a botched robbery, a young man believed to be an illegal immigrant shot a tourist and fired at cops while attempting to escape from store security.

Which is weird, because I thought handguns were illegal in New York...

Police offered a reward for information leading to his arrest, and now US Marshalls think they've got their guy.

A 15-year-old Venezuelan migrant.

Here's the DailyMail playing on your sympathies in their coverage:

He allegedly shot a lady and now he's crying because he was caught.

I guess we should let him go!

No, DA Bragg, I was just kidding!

Here's a video of the arrest:

From the DailyMail:

Jesus Alejandro Rivas-Figueroa, 15, a migrant from Venezuela, was arrested by US Marshals in Yonkers after a nearly day-long manhunt.

NYPD Deputy Chief of Detectives Jason Savino called him a 'very, very violent' suspect who recklessly fired a 'very large' .45 caliber handgun in a crowded area of New York City.

But the baby-faced alleged bandit, who was also wanted for armed robbery, looked more like a scared child crying for his mother.

DailyMail, the DA in New York is already going to let him go, I'm sure. You don't have to make the case for him!

Let's hope this young man is prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

I'm not holding my breath.
