Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner has scheduled a “community discussion” for Wednesday, July 28, at 7 p.m. at Yosemite Park to address what he described as “recent violence” in the Fairview section of town.
The latest incident happened yesterday afternoon, according to Greenburgh police, when someone reported shots fired at an apartment building at 33 Oak St. Public Information Officer Lt. Brian Ryan said officers found a number of shell casings and a door riddled with bullet holes on the second floor. Several people were inside but no one was hurt. None of the bullets penetrated the door.
A 17-year-old boy who lived on the second floor of the building was taken into custody and was charged with second-degree criminal possesion of a weapon, a felony. He allegedly had a loaded .22-caliber handgun on him. He was arraigned in Greenburgh Town Court and remanded to the Westchester County Jail.
Feiner said he plans to write to the owners of the building and ask that they pay for a community police officer to provide additional safety protection for residents. “It’s extremely important that residents of Greenburgh feel safe and be safe,” he said.
Meanwhile, police are asking anyone with information about the incident to call the Greenburgh Police Department at 914-682-5331. All calls will be kept confidential.
