A 16-year-old gang member who’s been busted on gun charges twice in the past eight months was nabbed for opening fire near a Brooklyn high school, police said Tuesday.
The teen, a reputed member of the G-Stone Crips whose name wasn’t released because of his age, squeezed off a shot at another person at East 26th Street and Glenwood Road near Midwood High School around 10 a.m. Monday, cops said.
Police didn’t immediately have information on the kid’s intended target.
The alleged teen gunman had on him a black and silver semi-automatic 9mm Glock 48 when he was arrested — his third collar in eight months, police said.
On March 10, he was busted for possession of a firearm, cops said. Just over two months later, on May 20, he was arrested again after he fired a round that activated a ShotSpotter alert, police said.
In the most recent bust, the teenager was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a firearm and two counts of menacing, police said.
NYPD Police Commissioner Dermot Shea tweeted about the teen’s case Tuesday, with a picture of the alleged weapon.
“After shots rang out yesterday near a #Brooklyn school, @NYPDBklynSouth & @NYPD70Pct cops quickly took a 16-year-old shooter & this 9mm Glock into custody. Already familiar with the justice system, he has 3 unsealed gun arrests in just the last 8 months,” he tweeted.
