05_Flatbed_2 - APRILAfter confronting his baby’s mother with a gun and firing shots at police, Yancy Jiminial, a 21-year-old Bronx man, was shot and wounded by cops who “fired 12 rounds at him, striking him once in the hip.” The violence surprised Jiminial’s sister, who described him as “a good guy” despite his 2006 attack on the ex-girlfriend and previous threats to his own mother and grandmother. With surgery, Jiminial is expected to survive his injury. |NYDN|
