Suspected gangster Robert Rivera, 19, was charged with the shooting of a woman’s car on Liberty Street on Wednesday and is being questioned by city detectives about the
firebombing of another car in the 800 block of Liberty on Tuesday morning.
Officers broke the case open, and discovered the MS-13 connection, after hearing shots from the gunning and soon after spotting Rivera on Grand Street sitting in black Mazda car that detectives think might have been used in the Tuesday firebombing.
Sgt. Carmelo Rodriguez and Detective Luis Baez handled the investigation, and Detective Damon Jefferson processed the crime scene.
