BREAKING: New York City Clerical Error Allows Murder Suspect To Be Released From Riker’s Island By Mistake — Here’s What We Know

Christopher Buggs, 26, from Brooklyn, was accidentally released from the Otis Bantum Correctional Center at 2 a.m. allegedly due to a clerical error, according to Fox News.

Buggs was being held without bail at Rikers Island while awaiting trial for more than three years.

Buggs was accused of fatally shooting 55-year-old Ernesto Brownlee outside a bodega in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn on January 29, 2018.

Brownlee, an ex-convict who murdered two men in the 1980s, was shot three times in the chest.

Buggs was tracked down and arrested three days afterward.

More from Fox News:

In a different criminal contempt case, a judge sentenced Buggs to just 30 days, and that sentence was mistakenly listed as the final disposition in the murder case, sources told the Daily News. Jail staffers did not realize the error before releasing Buggs early Tuesday.
