That’s one less bad — and not too smart — guy off the streets.
Police received multiple 911 calls at about 2:50 a.m. Sunday of gun shots in the vicinity of Broadway and Dyckman Street in Inwood.
Members of the 34th Precinct Anti-Crime Team saw the suspect — later identified by police as 42-year-old Wilfredo Roman of Manhattan — fleeing the area on foot and later arrested him and found a .38 caliber handgun, according to a post by Deputy Inspector Chris Morello on the precinct’s Facebook page.
Morello, the precinct’s commanding officer, added that the man “just decided to fire his gun randomly in a residential area.”
Roman has been charged with criminal possession of a weapon, criminal use of a weapon and reckless endagerment.
“We are working with our partners in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office to make sure this local bad guy doesn’t get back to this neighborhood anytime soon,” Morello said in the Facebook post.
