Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. frees white gunman

Vladimir Gotlibovsky shot a woman at a Waldorf-Astoria wedding in New York, handed the weapon to his brother, Felix Gotlibovsky, who passed the 9mm Ruger to his wife.

In all, five people were hit: the shooting victim and four who were hit by shrapnel or ricochet debris.

No one is being charged in the incident. Apparently, Gotlibovsky has a permit to carry a gun and shoot people at weddings. Further, it seems that the permit also covers those who subsequently try to hide the weapon.

When asked, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. denied through a spokesman that Gotlibovsky’s pasty white skin had anything to do with his being set free.

  1. “[Vladimir Gotlibovsky] was charged with reckless endangerment, assault with criminal negligence and tampering with physical evidence, and his brother Felix Gotlibovsky, 51, was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and tampering with physical evidence because he ended up taking the gun away. Felix wasn’t the only person to carry the gun: it was reportedly passed around like a hot potato from Vladimir to Felix to their mother to Vladimir’s wife, Maya.”

    We would have appreciated Cyrus Vance Jr. contacting us with the correction, but we heard about the charges from our Police Correspondent, MrMild.


  2. The wedding was in June, 2015. The lawsuit was filed in September of the same year. Now the New York Post runs a long article on the Russian wedding shoot-out. Why now? Must have been a slow news day.
