Police say a shooting at a Manhattan ice-skating rink that left two people wounded came after the shooter demanded that one of the victims give up his coat.

Authorities say the shooter approached a 20-year-old man at the Bryant Park rink late Saturday and wanted his coat. The man refused, and the shooter left. Police say the shooter then returned and started firing.

The 20-year-old man was hit in the arm and a 14-year-old boy was struck in the back. Neither injury was believed to be life-threatening. A teenager was in police custody Sunday, and charges were pending.

The popular park is between Fifth and Sixth avenues, behind the New York Public Library.

On Sunday, the grassy park was back to normal — filled with skaters and other visitors enjoying a mellow, sunny day.
