On July 16, 2016 at approximately 5:15 p.m., defendant Bruce was walking on Willow Street in Yonkers when he fired a .22 caliber semi-automatic pistol striking a four year old girl in the leg. She was not the intended target. The defendant ran from the scene. The victim was taken to a local area hospital where she was treated and released a few days later.

On July 26, 2016 at approximately 4:40 p.m., both Floyd Bruce and Lamont McLean were on Palisade Avenue in Yonkers. Both defendants, armed with handguns, approached two men in a parked car. They proceeded to rob both men at gunpoint. Both defendants then ran from the scene.

On July 27, 2016, both defendants were arrested by the Yonkers Police Department. At the time of Bruce’s arrest, police recovered a .22 caliber semi-automatic handgun that was in his possession. A ballistic test on the weapon matched it to the shooting which took place on July 16th.

Both defendants pled not guilty and were remanded to the Westchester County Jail.

Their next court date is Sept. 27, 2016.

Both defendants face a maximum of 25 years in state prison

Deputy Bureau Chief Nadine Nagler of the Career Criminal Division is prosecuting the case.
