Headlines: Teen shot in Yonkers, stolen car crashes into home, tax evasion sentencing
Here are some stories making headlines across the Hudson Valley.
Two Yonkers men are now facing charges for allegedly shooting a 14-year-old. Police say a group of young adults were in the area of Cliff and Spruce streets Friday night when the two suspects approached and fired at least nine times into the crowd. They say the teen was struck in the leg and was treated for injuries not considered life-threatening. Leroy Gibbs, 19, and Jeremiah Hughes, 20, are both charged with attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon.
Four people are facing charges for allegedly stealing a Kia and crashing it into a home just over the Westchester border in Greenwich, Connecticut. Police say the car was stolen from New York City and had damage to its ignition, consistent with the TikTok trend linked to a series of motor vehicle thefts. Police say nobody inside the home was injured. The four suspects from the Bronx are due in court later this month.
The manager of a trash hauling company in Westchester will spend the next year and a day in federal prison after being sentenced on tax evasion charges, according to authorities. Christopher Oxer worked for City Carting of Westchester. He pleaded guilty to federal tax charges last year and admitted to spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in company funds at strip clubs and on personal expenses. He did not include those expenses on his tax returns. Oxer must also pay $275,000 in restitution as part of his plea deal.
