New York City Police announced on Friday that the alleged gunman in a January 28 subway shooting that left one victim shot in the arm and stomach is a NYC comedian slated to perform at the LOL Comedy Lounge near Times Square.

The New York Post reports, “The alleged crime clown, Marcos Cofresi, 30, who performs under the names Leo and Leonardo Cofresi, is on the bill at the LOL Comedy Lounge on West 46th Street.”

According to the NYPD, on January 28 around 1 am, the suspected shooter and his female companion got into a fight with a 43-year-old man on the southbound N train. Police said the fight may have started after an accidental “bump” between the two men.

James Essig, NYPD Chief of Detectives, said, “He’s a comedian wanted in a shooting. There was a bump. Marcos pulls a gun.”

As the train arrived at the Broadway and Canal subway station, the fight escalated and the suspect pulled a firearm and shot the victim, who was later taken to Bellevue Hospital for treatment.
