Authorities also didn't immediately have any suspects in the 1:30 a.m. shooting on a busy weekend night.

A man with a long rap sheet has been arrested in a rape attempt on the Lower East Side earlier this month, police say. Robert Adames, 41, is the man police say followed a woman into her apartment building in the area of Norfolk and Rivington streets, shoved through her door and groped her on March 3.

The Republican health plan designed to replace the Obama-era health law known as the Affordable Care Act would not have taken full effect for a few years anyway — and now it's dead. "We're going to be living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future," House Speaker Paul Ryan said Friday. That means millions of Americans will have to navigate a current federal health care system that, while not "imploding" as President Donald J. Trump has said, is at least in flux.
