A Times Square shooting has left two innocent women injured after police opened fire, missing their target. On Sept. 15, MSN reported that police were trying to shoot Glenn Broadnax, 35. However, Broadnax evaded the bullets and two bystanders got hit by the gunfire. Broadnax was eventually taken into custody following the frightening ordeal which occurred at 42nd Street and Eighth Avenue.
"The bullets struck a 54-year-old woman in the right knee and a grazed a 35-year-old woman in the buttocks, police said. Neither had injuries considered life threatening," MSN reports. Both women are expected to be okay.
The Times Square shooting was frightening for a lot of people who were near the Port Authority Bus Terminal on Saturday night. While two innocent women were hurt during this time, police were able to catch up to Broadnax, nabbing him with a stun gun. He was arrested and charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance.
Police say that Broadnax was acting as though he had a gun. According to the report, he was making "movements that suggested" he was concealing a weapon. It is for this reason that police opened fire, clearly not knowing what Broadnax would do. Turns out, Broadnax was unarmed.
