There was terror at Bryant Park's skating rink late Saturday night as shots rang out. The NY Post reports that a gunman fired four or five shots leaving two skaters injured.

According to the NY Post, there were still about 150 skaters at Bryant Park just after 11pm Saturday night when a gunman shot into the rink, striking a 14-year-old boy, Adonis Mera from Manhattan. Doctors allegedly have told the boy's parents that the lower half of Mera's body has gone numb.

The NY Post reports that the gunman's intended target was 20-year-old Javier Conteras of the Bronx, who was also shot in the hand and hip. Both Conteras and Mera were rushed to Bellevue Hospital.

According to the reports from the NY Post and NY Daily News, the reason for the shooting could have been over a coat.

NBC 4 New York and the Associated Press are reporting that a 16-year-old boy is currently in custody in connection with the shooting with charges pending.
