Police have said someone has been shooting at Solow Management’s One East River Place rental tower. Reports said a tenant on the 14th floor woke up Friday morning to find glass strewn across the living room floor. Police believe the first bullet hit the building at 525 East 72nd Street sometime overnight between Thursday and Friday. Then, around 1 a.m. on Saturday, a tenant on the 32nd floor was awoken by the sound of shattering glass. No ballistic evidence was immediately recovered.

Police have offered a $2,500 reward for information leading to the shooter’s arrest, the report said. [NYDN] — Meenal Vamburkar
