NEW YORK (AP) - A teenager faces attempted murder charges in a weekend shooting at a crowded Manhattan ice-skating rink.

The shooting occurred late Saturday at the Bryant Park rink behind the main building of the New York Public Library.

A 20-year-old man and a 14-year-old boy were wounded.

Police say the violence erupted after the 16-year-old suspect attempted to rob the 20-year-old skater of his coat.

When the man refused to hand over his coat, police say the would-be robber left but returned later with a gun.

The 14-year-old is believed to have been an innocent bystander.

The suspect is being charged as an adult. Police also charged him with assault, criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment.
