NYC: Teen gunman surrenders to cops in Times Square shooting

A 16-year-old boy has surrendered to police in Manhattan in connection to the Times Square shooting last week that left a 21-year-old Marine tourist injured, The Post has learned.

The teen, who sources identified as Avon Darden, turned himself into the Midtown South police precinct Wednesday afternoon and was being questioned, police sources said.

Sources said the broad-daylight gun violence at the Crossroads of the World on June 27 stemmed from an argument with a breakdancer the night before — when the teen apparently walked in front of the performer.

The next day, the teen returned to the tourist hub — and the two went at it again, prompting the boy to allegedly pull a gun and open fire, police sources said.

But the slug ricocheted, striking Samuel Poulin, 21, in the upper back just as he and his family were walking past the Marriott Hotel on West 45th Street and Broadway around 5:15 p.m., cops said at the time.
