The man accused of nearly shooting two young siblings while firing at a foe in the Bronx has been arrested.
Michael Lopez, 27, is accused of the shooting in broad daylight on Sheridan Avenue on June 17th, aiming at a rival gang member who tripped over a 13-year-old girl and her 5-year-old, who are sibling, while attempting to dodge the gunshots.
According to authorities, the video shows Lopez fire multiple times at a 24-year-old guy as he falls over the startled siblings.
According to authorities, Lopez is charged with attempted assault, criminal possession of a weapon, criminal use of a firearm, reckless endangerment, and attempted reckless endangerment.
Lopez has three past felony convictions for which he is on parole, as well as two current cases, involving “a serious felony offense, robbery in the first degree, and a misdemeanor,” according to Assistant District Attorney Janene Carter.
She also mentioned Lopez’s failure to appear in court on two previous occasions.
