Boy, 16, shoots man who beats teenage girl at baby shower: police

Long Island police say a 16-year-old has been arrested after he allegedly shot and killed a 41-year-old at a baby shower while the man was trying to break up an argument between two teenagers.

According to police, both people were attending a baby shower in Bay Shore, Long Island, on Saturday night when the alleged shooting took place.

Suffolk County Police told the outlet that Vincent Peredaviz saw two teenage girls start fighting on the front lawn and tried to break it up. At the time, police said a 16-year-old man allegedly shot Peredaviz in the leg.

A witness was able to wrestle the 16-year-old to the ground and hold him down until officers could get to the scene and take him into custody.

In the US, 321 people are shot dead every day, according to statistics compiled by Brady using data from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project HCUPnet. Of these, 111 are fatal and 95 of them are intentionally shot by someone else and survive.

Peredaviz was taken to South Shore University Hospital in Bay Shore for treatment of serious injuries.

The teenager was reportedly charged with second degree assault and criminal possession of a second degree weapon. He was held overnight and scheduled to go to First District Count Juvenile Court in Central Islip.

Suffolk County Police were unable to provide updated information on the suspect’s court appearance.

New York State has some of the toughest gun laws in the country. The state enacted tougher laws last week, including a requirement that applicants for a concealed carry permit must be interviewed and another designating a number of locations as illegal for carrying a concealed firearm.

The legislative package came after a June Supreme Court decision overturning an ordinance that would have required concealed carry license applicants to show “proper reason”.

Several shootings involving teenagers have been witnessed in the United States in the past week. On Friday, a Michigan teenager was arrested after allegedly killing his own mother and her boyfriend at a home in suburban Detroit. The 19-year-old was charged with first-degree intentional homicide and two firearms felonies.

Two teenage girls were arrested in Arizona on Wednesday after police said they allegedly planned a school shooting and made a list of students to target. Boy, 16, shoots man who beats teenage girl at baby shower: police
