ROOSEVELT, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP)Police said they’ve arrested five men on attempted murder charges for a shooting at a Long Island deli.

Nassau County police said the shooting stemmed from an argument between one of the defendants and a 26-year-old man inside the Midway Deli in Roosevelt.

They said two of the defendant’s companions produced handguns and opened fire, striking the victim twice in the leg. A second victim, a 35-year-old woman, was shot in the foot. Both were treated at a hospital.

The three defendants left the deli and fled in a van with two other men. The shooting occurred last Sunday.

All five were charged with attempted murder, criminal use of a firearm and other charges. Four of the defendants have been arraigned.
