NEW YORK-William Boyland Jr., a Democratic New York state assemblyman from Brooklyn, was shot at while driving his car through Brooklyn with his seven year old son, resulting in a bullet in his back window. Black News 2 reports:
Boyland and his son were left unhurt, but there is still a question of whether this was a random occurrence.
NYDN reports that the shooting occurred about a week after locals rallied against Boyland for driving past a prayer vigil for 13-year-old Kira Goddard after she was killed on July 30th. Apparently Boyland simply honked his car horn and waved at mourners, but never stopped to pay his respects.
