Michael Perez Rodriguez, 27, is charged with reckless endangerment and misdemeanor assault after police say his gun discharged in the mall Sunday, injuring a woman and a child. No gun charges were filed because Rodriguez has a legal concealed carry permit.
Wallkill police said a man in khakis entered the building with a woman and a child on Sunday, and the man was seen in surveillance video moving the child near the doorway as they entered.
