Five Florida teens were busted for firing BB guns from the rooftop of a Manhattan hotel this week — striking a tourist and another pedestrian on the street, cops said.
The group — two 18-year-olds, one 17-year-old and two 16-year-olds — were shooting two BB guns on the rooftop of the Homewood Suites Hotel on West 37th Street near Eighth Avenue around 3 p.m. Monday, authorities said.
One 33-year-old woman, a tourist from Washington State, was struck in her right thigh, cops said.
Another woman who lives about a block away from the hotel was hit in the chest, police said.
Cops responded and took the teens into custody, police said.
“These individuals were found on the roof with BB guns,” a police spokesman said.
All five — including Dewin Urena and Anthony Spidle, both 18 — were charged with assault, menacing, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon, cops said. They were released to the custody of their parents.
The names of the younger suspects are being withheld because of their ages.
