Tren de Aragua Gang From Venezuela Is ‘Embedding’ In Cities Across America

A15-year-old Venezuelan migrant was arraigned Saturday on attempted murder charges for his alleged role in a Thursday night Times Square shooting.

Jesus Alejandro Rivas Figueroa was charged as an adult with two counts of attempted murder and assault, and a criminal weapons charge after reportedly shooting a Brazilian tourist and firing shots at NYPD officers who tried to subdue him during a shoplifting incident gone awry.

Police said the shoplifting incident took a turn when the juvenile was confronted by a keen female security guard. The teen began firing, and a 37-year-old Brazilian female tourist was shot in the leg as NYPD officers dodged bullets.
