Mt. Vernon commish kid shot on Bx. bus
A teenager who was shot on an MTA bus in The Bronx over the weekend was wounded during a gangrelated fight with other adolescents — and is the son of a high-ranking Westchester County police official, lawenforcement sources said.
The 17-year-old victim in the Saturday evening shooting is the son of Mount Vernon Police Deputy Commissioner Jeniffer Lackard, according to the sources.
The teen, whose name is being withheld by The Post, had boarded the BX5 bus in Soundview around 6 p.m. with three other boys, the sources said. Two teenagers later got on — and the victim allegedly flashed gang signs at them as he started to get off the bus, according to sources.
He allegedly asked them for their gang affiliation — then grabbed one of them and tried to drag him off the bus. In the scuffle, two shots were fired, with one hitting the victim in the chest, sources said.
He was rushed to Jacobi Hospital and was expected to recover. Lackard could not be reached for comment.
