Bronx News Roundup, Feb. 11

Two juries have begun deliberating in the Black Sunday fire trial. The prosecution and defense delivered closing arguments yesterday.

Two people were injured in a shooting this morning in Baychester, one while waiting for the bus. Service on the 5 was suspended for two hours while police searched for the suspect on Brooklyn-bound trains. No word on whether they found him.

It's not a good week for Baychester: police are also asking the public for help finding a man who tried to kidnap two women at gunpoint near East Gun Hill Road on Monday.

CNN has a report on a doctor who ran a small office in the South Bronx for decades with a mission to provide medical care for the poor, and now faces losing his own home.

The Mercy Center of the South Bronx is featured today in the Anglo-Celt Newspaper -- of Cavan, Ireland.

The Daily News reports on the ongoing ordeal of a paraplegic man handcuffed to a hospital bed and forcibly fed laxatives at Our Lady of Mercy Medical Center when he was mistaken for a drug mule - a radiologist reading an x-ray mistook gall bladder stones for condoms stuffed with drugs.

Hunts Point food vendors are protesting a policy change by the Post Office, which wants to charge them a new fee for picking up mail early.

We recently linked to one stink in the South Bronx. Now the Times has an article on another smelly substance being dumped in Hunts Point.
