15-yr-old illegal thug arrested after shooting tourist in Times Square during shoplifting – [VIDEO]

A 15-year-old illegal thug was arrested last night after shooting a tourist in Times Square while shoplifting and then shooting at cops. The illegal was from Venezuela and came over Biden’s open border last September.

Here’s a video story via the NY Post:

 
And here’s more via the Daily Caller:

A juvenile Venezuelan migrant was arrested Friday after he allegedly shot a tourist in Times Square, New York City, and then allegedly shot twice at a police officer Thursday evening, authorities said.

Times Square is a gun-free zone except for anyone specially authorized by law, according to New York City (NYC) Mayor Eric Adams and the NYC Department of Transportation.

Jesus Alejandro Rivas Figueroa, 15, was allegedly shoplifting with classmates, a 15-year-old and a 16-year-old, in a sporting goods store on Broadway in the Times Square area at about 7 pm, New York Police Department (NYPD) Chief of Patrol John Chell told reporters at a press conference late Thursday.

A female security officer at the store reportedly confronted them and seized the goods from them. Rivas Figueroa allegedly fished out a .45 caliber handgun and fired at the security officer into a crowd, according to Chell. The bullet missed the security officer but struck a 37-year-old Brazilian female tourist, Chell said. NYPD officers chased down and arrested the other 15-year-old. One of the officers chased Rivas Figueroa, who allegedly turned around and fired twice at the officer, according to Chell.

The NYPD arrested the 16-year-0ld alleged accomplice early Friday, Chell said.

Rivas Figueroa was arrested Friday afternoon at Yonkers, about 16 miles north of Times Square, NYPD Deputy Chief Jason Savino said at another press conference. The injured tourist was reportedly waiting in line to buy a pair of sneakers when the stray bullet hit her in her left knee. She was treated at a hospital and discharged, Savino said.

Rivas Figueroa entered the U.S. in September 2023 from Venezuela and lived in a temporary migrant shelter in the Stratford Arms Hotel. He also was a suspect in a Jan. 27 armed robbery incident in the Bronx and a separate, previous shooting, Chell said.

They don’t say how the woman is doing who was shot but I hope she’s doing okay. And I hope Biden calls her and apologizes for letting this criminal thug in the US.
