One member of robbery team linked to little girl’s shooting pleads guilty



WHITE PLAINS – A Yonkers man pled guilty to robbery, attempted assault and criminal possession as a weapon, all as felonies.
On July 16, 2016 at about 5:15 p.m., Floyd Bruce, 19, was walking on Willow Street in Yonkers when he fired a .22 caliber semi-automatic pistol striking a four-year-old girl in the leg. She was treated at a local hospital and released a few days later.
On July 26, 2016, at about 4:40 p.m., both Bruce and Lamont McLean, also charged in the incident, were on Palisades Avenue in Yonkers. Both men were armed with guns. They approached two men in a parked car and robbed them at gunpoint.
The following day they were arrested by Yonkers Police. At that time, police recovered a .22 caliber semi-automatic handgun in his possession. A ballistic test matched that gun to the shooting that took place on July 16.    
Bruce faces 25 years in state prison when sentenced in November.
McLean, 23, also of Yonkers, was charged with three felony counts of robbery. He remains in Westchester County Jail pending his future court appearance.
