[Ed. – No one was killed — this time.]
The teen busted for allegedly opening fire during a gang battle on a Bronx street, narrowly missing a little girl, was already home Saturday after making bail — infuriating those shaken by the gunplay in their neighborhood.
Edgar Garcia, 16, of East Harlem, was arraigned Friday night on charges of attempted murder, attempted assault, reckless endangerment, weapons possession and harassment, prosecutors said.
Authorities contend Garcia, an alleged member of Los Vagos — a Mexican gang with a stronghold on 116th Street in Manhattan — was targeting a 19-year-old man and four others believed to belong to a rival Bronx gang, Los Cholos.
The shooter was caught on camera on Feb. 22 aiming at the group near the corner of Gerard Avenue and 167th Street. As he popped off three rounds in their direction, the young girl in bright pink leggings tore off in the opposite direction and ducked for cover. No one was hurt.
Garcia was charged as an adult, though his case will proceed in the youth part of Bronx Criminal Court.
Bail was set at $25,000 bond or $10,000 cash or credit card by Justice John P. Collins — though prosecutors had asked for $100,000.
