The gunman who shot three random people in Times Square, including a 4-year-old child was arrested on Wednesday.
Farrakhan Muhammad, 31, was arrested near Jacksonville, Florida Wednesday while he was chowing down on a McDonald’s burger with his gal pal, according to the New York Post.
Police were able to track Muhammad’s whereabouts thanks to a flood of anonymous tips to Crimestoppers and other investigative measures.
Farrakhan Muhammad, 31, was collared by US Marshals and members of the NYPD’s Regional Fugitive Task Force in the parking lot of the burger franchise in Starke, just outside Jacksonville, as he and his gal pal sat in the still-running car, police and sources said.
“He did not get to finish his Happy Meal,” a federal law enforcement source with knowledge of the arrest joked to The Post.
Police said the illegal CD peddler and career criminal had “altered his appearance” by shaving his head in the aftermath of Saturday’s broad daylight bloodshed at the Crossroads of the World that left three people, including a 4-year-old girl, injured.
Three people, including a 4-year-old child were shot in Times Square in broad daylight late Saturday afternoon.
According to reports, four men in front of 1515 Broadway got into an argument when at least one them (now identified as Farrakhan Muhammad) pulled out a gun and began to shoot.
The bullets missed the men and struck three other innocent bystanders.
Two women and one child were taken to Bellevue Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The mainstream media lost interest in this story after the NYPD released an image of the suspect asking the public for help.
