Bryant Park skating rink shooting suspect Corey Dunton smiles as cops escort him from Midtown South Precinct on Monday.
What could he possibly be smiling about?
Grinning like the devil, but acting cold as ice, the teenage gangbanger accused of attempted murder in the weekend shooting at the Bryant Park skating rink spouted F-bombs and racial epithets at a Daily News reporter as he was led out of a police station.
Adonis Mera, a 14-year-old bystander, was shot in the back during the shooting. He may never walk again.
“F–k all you n—–s!,” Corey Dunton screamed as detectives escorted him in handcuffs out of the Midtown South Precinct station house.
The day before the shooting, Dunton posted on Facebook his intentions of going to Bryant Park.
Dunton, 16, who was due to be arraigned Monday night, was apprehended by police early Sunday after he all but confessed on Facebook to spraying the skating rink with bullets on Saturday night. Dunton’s alleged target, Javier Contreras, 20, was hit in the arm, and 14-year-old skater Adonis Mera was shot in his back. Mera’s family fears he will be paralyzed. Police said Dunton fired at Contreras after the alleged Blood was unable to boost Contreras’ $600 Marmot Mammoth jacket. When The News’ scribe asked if the police account of the Mammoth-related squabble was accurate, Dunton got personal. “It wasn’t over a jacket,” he barked, still sporting a sickening smile. “It was over your mother.”
