A gunman was arrested this week for repeatedly shooting at a 16-year-old boy in the Bronx late last year, authorities said.
Michael Spand, 24, was picked up by NYPD warrant officers around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday in connection with the Nov. 30 shooting of the teenager on Tratman Avenue near Overing Street in Westchester Square, police officers said.
Spand got out of a taxi along with another man, who is still at large, walked a short distance and approached the boy, police said.
Spand then allegedly fired multiple times and once punched the teenager in the right hand.
The victim was taken to Jacobi Medical Center in stable condition.
Spand was charged with attempted murder, assault, criminal use of a firearm, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon, police officers said.
The motive for the shooting remained unknown on Wednesday. The other man who was with Spand is still wanted for questioning.
Once in custody, Spand was linked to a couple of grand robberies and criminal use of a March gun incident, police officers said.
He has 11 previous unsealed arrests dating back to 2014, almost all for robberies, police said.
