Innocent Bystander Shot In Arverne

By Howard Schwach

An innocent bystander walking outside of his Arverne apartment building was shot in the leg by a thug who then fled towards the Ocean Village Houses, police say.

The unidentified 51-year-old man was walking in front of 54-22 Beach Channel Drive at about 9:30 p.m., when a young man on a mountain bike fired several shots, hitting the victim once in the right leg.

He was transported by EMS ambulance to Jamaica Hospital, where he was treated and released.

Detectives from the 101 Precinct Squad are investigating.

Anybody with information on the shooting is urged to contact the detectives at 718-868-3429.
