Snitch Shot 15 Minutes After Being Released From 15 Prison Sentence
A Manhattan man was sprung from an upstate prison Thursday after serving 15 years — only to be shot 15 minutes later by a thug he snitched on, law enforcement sources told The Post.
The 33-year-old man was released from Otisville State Prison at 9:45 a.m. with a train ticket for a trip to a halfway house in Manhattan.
But when he got outside, someone in a white Hyundai offered him a ride — an offer he quickly accepted.
After about two miles, the car pulled over and a second person hopped out of the trunk, pulled out a gun and fired two shots at the newly freed man, police sources said.
The victim stumbled to the Metro-North station in Otisville, where workers called for help, sources said.
He was taken to Westchester Medical Center and is in stable condition.
The victim — who served time for criminal sale of a controlled substance, weapons and assault — identified the shooter.
The guman had a beef with the victim for snitching on him, sources said.
Cops tracked the two suspects to the Upper East Side and arrested them Thursday evening.
