DISTRICT ATTORNEY VANCE ANNOUNCES INDICTMENT IN TIMES SQUARE SHOOTING

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., today announced the indictment and arraignment of RAYVON GUICE in New York State Supreme Court on charges relating to a shooting in Times Square earlier this month. GUICE is charged with Attempted Murder, Assault in the first and third degrees, and two counts of Criminal Possession of a Weapon[1].

“The first job of the District Attorney is to ensure safety in our streets,” said District Attorney Vance. “Intentionally firing a gun into a crowd was a dangerous and deplorable act, with potentially fatal consequences. Although the overall crime rate in the city remains low, any outburst of violence will be handled seriously.”

According to the criminal court complaint, on April 5, 2010, RAYVON GUICE fired approximately two shots from a handgun into a crowd of at least fifteen people at West 34th Street and 7th Avenue. Two women suffered gunshot wounds—one was struck in her thigh and the other was struck in her arm.
