If u cn rd th abv, u mght hv a prblm. The author certainly does.

That his prblms started long before he shot a 20-year-old and 14-year-old at a skating rink in Midtown Manhattan on Saturday is indicated by the fact that he spent an hour updating his Facebook page — adding the above “messages” — after police showed up at his door on Sunday.

Corey Dunton If Obama had a sonHis name is Corey Dunton, and somewhere along the line in his 16 years on the planet, he learned that if you want something, you take it — by force, if need be. What Dunton saw and coveted on Saturday at the Bryant Park ice rink was a Marmot Mammoth parka (commonly known as the “Biggie”) on the back of one of the skaters. When the owner, Javier Contreras, 20, refused to part with his jacket, Dunton went back to his Bronx apartment, acquired his “piece,” and returned to the rink to claim the jacket opening fire.

Before the smoke had cleared, he had felled not only Contreras, but Adonis Mera, 14, an innocent bystander who had not been involved in the altercation. Doctors report that Mera, who took a bullet in the back, may be paralyzed from the waist down.

One of Duntons victimsSo how did the NYPD manage to crack the case so quickly? Dunton, ever the criminal mastermind, left the scene of the shooting and promptly boasted about his exploits on social media. The Daily News reports that police were tipped off by a witness who read the posts and directed them to Dunton’s “shameless Facebook page — which features pictures of him, arms extended, pretending to hold a gun.”

Facebook postingDunton has been charged with attempted murder, assault, criminal possession of a weapon, and reckless endangerment. He had several prior arrests but was prosecuted as a juvenile, as a result of which the cases are sealed. There is a chance — albeit remote — that he will walk, even if one of his victims won’t.
