Bronx News Roundup, Nov. 18

Police have arrested five suspects in connection with Monday's two shootings in the Bronx. All five suspects are residents of the Bronx. A 15-year old girl hit by a stray bullet in one of the shootings is still in critical condition at Lincoln Hospital.

Multiple tenants of 1380 University Avenue are suing their landlord over the building's unsafe conditions.

Political experts suggest that Mayor Bloomberg should set aside more time to visit boroughs other than Manhattan-- especially the Bronx-- in order to improve his approval ratings throughout the city.

The family of a dead 16 year-old Bronx girl is suing the New York City Police Department. Police said they were unable to find the body of the girl, Tiana Rice, for one month. During this month, police did not know the body was actually in a morgue in Brooklyn under a different name.

Yesterday, at the last public hearing on the Kingsbridge Armory redevelopment, City Council members began to question the developer, Related Companies, about the feasibility of providing living wages to workers. Hundreds of protesters came to the hearing to speak out against the development unless a living wage is provided. Look for a Bronx News Network post on this soon.
