Investigators recovered a .380 calibre semi-automatic pistol from the scene. A photo of the gun showed a shell casing lodged in it.

Sources told CBS2 that investigators believe the gun got stuck, which likely prevented Little from firing more than two shots.

Police Report

Sources said Little — who also goes by the aliases “Cho Cho” and “Choo choo” — has more than 40 arrests on his record, including 12 felonies and 28 misdemeanours.

He spent about five months behind bars for criminal sale of a controlled substance, a class D felony, before being released on parole in May 2019. His post-release supervision ended in May of last year, records show.

Little was given a desk appearance ticket on Dec. 14 for stealing close to $1,000 in merchandise from Macy’s, law enforcement sources said.

But he neglected to show up to Manhattan Criminal Court for his return date of Dec. 29, and a judge issued a bench warrant, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office said.

A police official called Little “a career criminal robber, drug user, drug seller, weapon carrier” who has “been doing it since he was old enough to get into the criminal justice system.”

“He commits crimes all over the city, from Rockaway to Midtown Manhattan,” the official told The Post. “From selling weed to pissing in the street to turnstile jumping — he’s got it all.”

The official said the case should serve as a wake-up call for progressive district attorneys — from Chicago to Los Angeles and San Francisco and now even Manhattan — who have stopped prosecuting low-level offences.
