The suspected shooter has been identified as Guy Rivera, a 34-year-old who had been arrested 21 times, the New York Post reported. The vehicle’s other occupant, the driver of the car, was named as 41-year-old Lindy Jones, who had 12 known prior arrests, according to Fox News. . . .

Rivera was released from a New York prison in 2021 after serving five years for criminal possession of a controlled substance, according to state records. He also served time in 2011 for first-degree assault and was released in 2014.

He was being driven by Jones, who also had a string of arrests to his name, most recently for possessing a loaded firearm in April 2023.

“Less than a year, he’s back on the streets with another gun,” New York City Mayor Eric Adams said at a press conference. . . .
