Marcela Aldana Wiki – Marcela Aldana Biography
Marcela Aldana, 43, from Passaic, New Jersey, was hit in the left foot, with a bullet to be removed in surgery later, sources said.
“Her husband was reportedly holding their 2-year-old when she was stuck by a bullet. ‘I started screaming, asking for help, it was really scary,’ Magrinat told the local station. ‘Thank God it didn’t break my bone, but it did go inside. The doctor said he wouldn’t do any surgery or take out the bullet, it would do more damage,’” added the Post.
In addition to Magrinat, a four-year-old and a New Jersey woman were also wounded.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted, “The perpetrators of this senseless violence are being tracked down and the NYPD will bring them to justice. The flood of illegal guns into our city must stop.”
“I got lucky. I am alive but there is a 4 year old that got hit, a 4 year old in the hospital with her mother sitting there on Mother’s Day,” said Magrinat. “I never thought this would happen in Times Square with so many families around.”
“Three innocent bystanders — including a 4-year-old girl who was toy shopping with her family — were shot Saturday in Times Square when a man arguing with three other people wildly fired into the late afternoon crowd, according to police and sources. The bullets flew at 4:55 p.m. outside of 1515 Broadway, along West 44th Street, when the dispute turned the Crossroads of the World into a shooting gallery and shocked even hardened members of New York’s Finest,” reports the Post.
According to the Post, “The adult victims are Wendy Magrinat from Rhode Island — who was in the city to see the Statue of Liberty, but missed her ride and went to Times Square instead
Who is the Suspect Shooter?
Police on Saturday released surveillance video of the suspected shooter and NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said he expected a quick arrest in the case.
The shooter had been wearing a black jacket and black Adidas pants at the time — but seemingly stripped off before he was caught on surveillance footage in a distinctive-looking shirt with the number “9.”
Early Sunday, officers with a canine unit were photographed by The Post pulling clothes matching what the suspect had been wearing at the time of the shooting from a trash can on the corner of 10th Avenue and 42nd Street.
Officers were also seen going in and out of a building there, although it is not immediately clear if it is tied to the suspect.
