A 19-year-old man has been arrested and charged with attempted murder after shooting three men several times at the World’s Fair Marina in July.
Abel Mora, who was arrested within the confines of the 104th Precinct on Thursday, Aug. 13, has been charged with three counts of attempted murder, three counts of assault, two counts criminal possession of a weapon, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a firearm, according to the criminal complaint.
On July 12, around 12:30 a.m., Mora allegedly got out of the backseat of a white Mitsubishi sedan parked at the World’s Fair Marina and pulled out a gun, the criminal complaint said.
Mora then fired off five to seven shots, hitting three men in the spray of bullets, according to the complaint.
The first man was shot three times — twice in his torso and once in his arm — and was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated for his injuries, according to the complaint.
The second man was shot once in his torso, got into his car and drove himself to a nearby hospital, where doctors performed surgery to his spleen, pancreas and colon, which were all damaged by the bullet, the complaint states.
The third man was shot once in his left arm and taken to a nearby hospital. The man suffered soft tissue damage to his injured arm, according to the complaint.
Mora was arraigned in Queens Criminal Court on Friday, Aug. 14, where a judge issued a $300,000 bond or $150,000 cash bail, which Mora did not post.
Mora will appear back in court on Friday, Aug. 21.
