15-year-old illegal immigrant starts crying while getting arrested after he allegedly shot a tourist and fired at police in Times Square.
“He was crying. When he was apprehended, he was crying… Here he is committing these adult acts, that’s something you don’t expect a child to do, and then when he’s apprehended, he’s brought out in handcuffs crying,” said NYPD spokesman Carlos Nieves.
Jesus Alejandro Rivas-Figueroa and his two friends tried robbing a JD Sports store and were stopped by a security guard.
The teen then pulled out a .45-caliber handgun and fired into a crowd.
Nieves said that the teen would most likely be charged with attempted murder of a police officer.
The teen is from Venezuela and arrived in September.
