NYC has another deadly weekend with no accountability

What a weekend of violence in New York City. The tally is still be counted, but we had a least 4 dead and more than a dozen injuries from assorted crimes in the five boroughs.

A man was killed when he was shot and run over by his killer’s car on Saturday.

The gruesome attack happened around 8:10 a.m. in front of an apartment building at 970 Kelly St. in the Foxhurst section of The Bronx, police said.

On Sunday morning police shot and killed a parolee who was waving a gun around during a fight in upper Manhattan.

Uniformed police officers were at Nagle Avenue and Dyckman Street in Inwood around 3 a.m. when they saw the armed 29-year-old, who was out on parole for drugs, involved in a fight and ordered him to drop the weapon, NYPD Chief of Patrol Jeffrey Maddrey said.

“They observe a dispute,” Maddrey said. “As they get closer to the dispute, they observe a male with a gun in his hand fighting in the crowd. The officers exit their vehicle and give commands for the person to drop the firearm.”

The officers yelled “repeated commands” and then discharged their weapons, he said.

“They discharge multiple rounds striking the suspect with the gun about the body,” Maddrey said.

An elderly man shot and killed his brother in a domestic dispute in Queens on Saturday.

An off-duty city Correction officer was grazed by a stray bullet while driving along the Cross Island Parkway in Queens, authorities said.

The 40-year-old officer was heading southbound on the parkway at the Long Island Expressway in a private vehicle, shortly after 11 a.m. Saturday, when he was hit, an NYPD spokesman said.

A 53-year-old Asian man was pummeled with a baseball bat by a suspect in Prospect Park Saturday afternoon.

The savage beating happened around 12:20 p.m. on the park’s Well House Drive, police said.

The victim was struck with the bat “multiple times” by an unidentified goon who may have fled the scene on a bicycle, according to the NYPD.

And lastly, a man was shoved onto the tracks at a Bronx subway station in an unprovoked attack on Saturday morning.

The 26-year-old man was standing on the platform at the East 149th Street station waiting for a northbound 6 train around 11:50 a.m. when a stranger suddenly pushed him onto the tracks, cops said.

The man did not make any contact with the third rail and was helped back up to the platform by a good Samaritan before any trains arrived, police said.

And so it goes in the city for this weekend. No mention from any elected official about all this crime. To them they are all one offs.

There needs to be accountability for this unacceptable current state of affairs.
