THE BRONX -

Another suspect has been charged in last week's Mott Haven shooting that left a 7-year-old with a graze wound to the leg, police say.

Police charged Manuel Colon, 31, with attempted murder, assault, criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment.

Authorities say they responded to shots fired last Wednesday in front of the Millbrook Houses on East 137th Street. When they arrived, they found the wounded boy near the corner of East 137th Street and St. Ann's Avenue.

The boy was with his grandmother at the time. She was unharmed.

Police say the first arrest was made Wednesday. That suspect is already at Bronx Central Booking.
