SEAFORD, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a Long Island man set up a makeshift shooting target near the grounds of an elementary school.

Nassau County authorities went to the home on Island Channel Road in Seaford on Saturday morning in response to a report of BB gun shots from the property, which is next to the Seaford Harbor Elementary School.

Investigators say the 55-year-old man had set up a suit of armor against a fence as a target. It was riddled with bullet holes, including some from a rifle.

The man was arrested, and authorities say he was also in possession of cocaine and pills. He faces multiple counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance and prohibitions on the use and possession of firearms.
