Suspects Charged In Long Island Deli Shooting

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.

      AND THE NORM FOR WHITE COMMUNITIES IS TO STEAL AFRICANS FOR FORCED LABOR AND WIPE OUT THE INDIANS FOR THEIR LAND. WE CAN GO ALL DAY WITH THIS . FOR EXAMPLE, LYING PRES BUSH (A WHITE GUY) WHO SEND OUR FELLOW AMERICANS TO KILL AND DIE FOR WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION THAT DIDN’T EXIST. OH YEAH, I ALMOST FORGOT, THAT’S THE NORM FOR WHITE PEOPLE. STEAL A COUNTRY’S NATURAL RESOURCES IN THE NAME OF BRINGING THEM THE BIBLE OR FREE ELECTIONS, WHILE THEIR STREETS ARE FILLED WITH BLOOD.
