A Brooklyn man who felt his infant daughter was not getting the proper care at Elmhurst Hospital on Thursday threatened to “shoot it up or blow it up,” referencing the recent shooting at Bronx Lebanon Hospital, the police said.
According to an NYPD spokesman, at about 3:20 p.m., Jamar Claiborne, 34, called the hospital at 79-01 Broadway, and said “You know what happened at Bronx-Lebanon, I have no issue with doing the same thing. I would kill for my daughter, I don’t care, I have been in the service, I have a crazy card, I know I will be arrested.”
Claiborne was arrested on Friday and charged with three counts of making terroristic threats, three counts of aggravated harassment and three counts of harassment.
Claiborne was arraigned Saturday and is being held at Rikers Island on $50,000 bail or $100,000 bond. He has been ordered back to court on July 28.
