STARKE, Fla. ((DailyNews)) — The man suspected of shooting and wounding three people in New York’s Times Square, including a 4-year-old girl, will get a few days to consider extradition from Florida.
At a brief hearing Thursday in Starke, Florida, a judge gave Farrakhan Muhammad 72 hours to consult with a lawyer on whether he will waive a full extradition hearing and agree to return to New York.
He’s expected back in court Sunday, according to the Bradford County court clerk.
Muhammad, 31, was arrested Wednesday at a McDonald’s in Starke. In New York, investigators say he wounded three people with stray bullets during some type of dispute involving his brother and others.
Wendy Magrinat, a 23-year-old tourist visiting from Rhode Island, was shot in the leg. A 43-year-old woman from New Jersey was shot in the foot. The 4-year-old girl, from Brooklyn, was also shot in the leg.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said all three victims have been released from the hospital and are expected to fully recover.
