Bronx News Roundup, Wednesday, June 29

Late speed roundup today, folks.

Weather: Sunny today, might rain tomorrow afternoon. 

Quick Hits:

A post-graduation ceremony brawl in a parking lot near the Bronx's Lehman College ended with the stabbing death of Isayah Muller, a star running back for Truman High School. His father, who was also apparently involved in the fight, was charged with assault, while two parking lot attendants were questioned but not charged. I know, this makes very little sense. Hopefully we'll get some clarity soon.

Three of the four men convicted for plotting to bomb two Riverdale synagogues were sentenced to 25 years a piece, less than the life sentence prosecutors were seeking. 
Ayouba Doumbia, a Bronx refugee who was tortured in his native Ivory Coast graduated yesterday from a school in Manhattan that caters to special cases.

New Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott is making his rounds at graduation ceremonies all over the city, including the Urban Assembly School for Applied Math and Sciences in the Bronx.

Bronx Heights Neighborhood Community Corp., which has been under fire for mismanaging 10 affordable housing buildings in Morris Heights, recently filed for bankruptcy.

Two men were shot in Hunts Point last night.

News organizations everywhere are picking up the story of the stolen Williamsbridge Oval Park piano, first reported here on the Bronx News Network. We'll link to the NY Times story because they gave us credit and linked to us. Thanks, Times
