John Lembo

U.S. Marshals have apprehended a suspected gunman wanted for shooting a man who was critically wounded in Glen Cove over the summer, police said.

John Lembo was arrested Wednesday in Brooklyn and charged with second-degree attempted murder, criminal possession of a weapon and criminal use of a firearm.

Glen Cove city police said the 47-year-old fired several shots from a handgun at two people, hitting one victim in the neck on Glen Street on July 12. The victim suffered extensive internal injuries.

“The defendant left the area immediately after the incident and could not be located,” said Det. Lt. John Nagle.

Lembo will be arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
