Bail denied for teen who fired stray bullet that hit toddler



A Staten Island teen who cops say shot a toddler in the head will stay locked up until at least next week.

Damark King, 19, was denied bail Thursday after allegedly shooting an 18-month-old in the eye during a fight with the baby’s relatives the day before, officials said.

Although police said the toddler was in critical but stable condition, she reportedly lost her left eye.

The Staten Island District Attorney’s office said King faces assault and weapons charges, and may also face parole violation charges. He is due back in court Tuesday.
