Three people were wounded in Times Square on Saturday night as shootings in Mayor Bill de Blasio’s (D) New York City surge 83 percent.

The New Daily reports three individuals were shot around 5 p.m. Saturday “at the intersection of 7th Avenue and 44th Street.”

Two women and a four-year-old girl were injured.

The Daily Mail noted the four-year-old “was struck in the leg, a 24-year-old woman was hit in her thigh and a 44-year-old woman was shot in the foot.”

NYPD released video of a suspect wanted in connection with the shooting:
On April 27, 2021, Breitbart News explained Mayor de Blasio’s NYC saw 46 shooting incidents over a seven-day time-frame. Those incidents left behind 50 shooting victims.

New York adopted a large number of gun controls in 2013 under the auspices of the SAFE Act. Those controls include universal background checks, a ban on “high capacity” magazines, an “assault weapons” ban, firearm registration requirements, and ammunition registration.

The New York Government’s webpage notes the state also has a red flag law, which took effect August 24, 2019.

Thirty-one-year-old Farrakhan Muhammad was arrested Wednesday in connection with the shooting that wounded three people in New York City’s Times Square.

Breitbart News reported the shooting came amid an 83 percent surge in NYC shooting incidents and left two women and a four-year-old girl injured.

The New York Police Department (NYPD) released images of the shooting suspect shortly after the incident occurred:

The New York Post reports the suspect, identified as 31-year-old Muhammad, was captured in Jacksonville, Florida, on Wednesday.

The Post cites sources claiming “Muhammad stopped at a single-room-occupancy hotel in Hell’s Kitchen to change his clothes after the shooting — and then headed for Florida with his girlfriend.”

He was captured by U.S. Marshals and will be handed over to the NYPD.

ABC 7 notes Muhammad was arrested seven times between 2007 and 2015, and arrested again in 2018 and 2020. The arrests rested on various charges, including harassment and assault.

Failed New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, a far-left Democrat who promised to slash the New York City police budget by $1.5 billion, is backpedaling big time. Last month, he increased the NYPD budget by $130 million and this week, in the wake of those horrible weekend killings in Times Square, he’s deploying more police officers to the area:
Mayor de Blasio promised a strong response to the weekend’s shocking shooting at Times Square even as he played down its potential impact on tourism on Monday.

Hizzoner said the NYPD would deploy an unspecified number of “critical response” officers to the popular tourist destination and “maybe some other areas, as well,” following the Saturday incident. Two women and a 4-year-old were struck by gunfire that broke out following an argument among several men.

Critical response teams are deployed for everything from terrorist threats to civic unrest, along with violent crimes.
This is one of the great pleasures of Woketardery… Sitting back and waiting for reality to prove Woketardism is the worst idea in the history of humanity. Unfortunately, Democrats are so depraved, innocent people have to be hurt before they’re forced to admit the truth.

The idea of defunding the police is so goddamned stupid I can hardly wrap my mind around it. First off, if your police department does indeed require reforming, slashing the budget is the exact wrong way to accomplish that. Reform requires extra training, new personnel, and more money to attract better personnel.

Secondly, America needs cops… we just do. Criminals are not big on social justice. Criminals are not invested in seeing your social justice experiment succeed. Criminals don’t care about owning the Republicans. Criminals might pose as Woketards, but it’s all a con to convince quisling Democrats like de Blasio to defund the police, to neuter and weakened policing to a point where the criminal’s job is made easier. This is especially true for street gangs who compete directly with cops to decide who will control the streets.

Black Lives Matter and Antifa are terrorist organizations who have successfully suckered a whole bunch of dimwit Democrats like de Blasio into making it easier for them to terrorize.

But, and just as I predicted waaaaay last year at the start of this madness, eventually reality rolls around — the reality of increased murders, car-jackings, and the like, and this reality hits so hard, even a fascist-socialist like de Blasio is forced to increase police funding and to admit only the police can stop crime, which is what he’s doing by deploying more police officers to Times Square. You will note that de Blasio is not deploying more social workers to Times Square.

If the Big Apple is going to rebound from the shattering effects the 1619 Riots and de Blasio’s anti-science coronavirus lockdowns, he needs tourism to rebound, which means he must get a handle on the explosion of violent crime in his city, and the only way to do that is policing, and the more policing the better.

Policing is what saved New York City in the first place. New York was a disaster in the early 1990s. Then Rudy Giuliani came to town and introduced the Broken Windows policy, a policing approach that says if you don’t fix the broken windows in your factory, kids are going to break more windows under the belief this is okay.

What Giuliani and the NYPD did for New York was nothing short of a miracle. They removed all the broken windows that said criminality was okay – things like panhandling, loitering, sleeping on sidewalks, etc. Suddenly New York looked like a place where breaking the law, even a small one, came with a consequence and the city was transformed, renewed. And then along came de Blasio…

De Blasio might not have cut much of that $1.5 billion he promised, but he did institute bail reform AKA a revolving door where even those accused of murder are released, he did eliminate specialized policing units… Add these destructive policies to his anti-cop rhetoric and what you get is a toxic environment criminals thrive on.

Regardless, reality is reality and as long as we’re still a democracy (something else the left want to eliminate), reality matters to voters. So de Blasio has no choice but to admit, through his actions, that his anti-cop rhetoric is all a big pile of failed nonsense.
