Former DPW worker convicted of attempted murder

WHITE PLAINS – A Westchester County Court jury Monday convicted a former Mount Vernon DPW employee of attempted murder. The jury also found Carl Ragland, also known as “Leakumns,” 35, of 275 South Columbus Avenue in Mount Vernon of felony assault and criminal possession of a weapon and misdemeanor resisting arrest.

On June 18, 2013, Ragland and the victim argued at a local bar. Ragland left the bar, went to a neighboring apartment building, came back out with a gun and shot the woman in the chest. She staggered across the street where she called 911. She was able to provide the police with his description.

Two days later, Mount Vernon and New Rochelle Police responded to an address in New Rochelle where they found Ragland hiding in a bedroom closet. He initially resisted arrest, but was taken into custody.

Ragland faces a maximum of 25 years in state prison when sentenced in May.
