A 16-year-old in Westchester admitted to attempted murder in the shooting of a teenager last June.
Christian Rodriguez, of Yonkers, pleaded guilty this week to second-degree attempted murder before Westchester County Court Judge Helen Blackwood in the County Court Youth Part. Rodriguez was indicted as a Juvenile Offender due to his age.
Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr., said that shortly after 5 p.m. on June 21 last year, Rodriguez fired a semi-automatic pistol at a teenage boy in the area of Hyland and Stanley avenues in Yonkers.
Rodriguez was caught by a surveillance video camera, which captured the shooting incident, leading to his arrest. Rodriguez and the victim knew each other and the shooting was a result of a dispute.
Other charges against Rodriguez are pending in the Bronx. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Wednesday, April 22.
