HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) - Two brothers are under arrest on Long Island after a guest at a party in their home was shot during an argument.

The 24-year-old victim survived but was in critical condition Sunday at a hospital with a bullet to the neck.

Nassau County police say he was shot Saturday just before dawn in front of the brothers’ home in Hempstead. The argument started inside and escalated to the street.

One of the suspects, 28-year-old Oneil Meade, is charged with attempted murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon. His 41-year-old brother, Clive Meade, is charged with tampering with physical evidence.

They were awaiting arraignment Sunday. Police did not know if the two had a lawyer.

Authorities did not release the victim’s name.
