LAKEVIEW, N.Y. (AP) - A Long Island man is accused of shooting a man in the shoulder and attempting to rob him following a dispute inside a store.

Nassau County police say Terence Cunningham was arrested on Sunday in connection with the Dec. 16 incident in Lakeview.

Police say the victim became involved in an argument with Cunningham inside the Middle Store Deli & Grocery. They say Cunningham then left the store, waited for the victim to exit, approached him and fired one shot from a handgun. The victim was struck in the shoulder and chest.

Police say the suspect then tried to remove the victim’s property before fleeing.

Cunningham has been charged with assault, criminal use of a firearm and attempted robbery.

It wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer.
