An alleged gunman has been accused of shooting a man when a fight escalated at a deli in the suspect’s hometown of Lakeview last week.

Nassau County police arrested 27-year-old Terence Cunningham late Sunday night and charged him with assault, criminal use of a firearm, attempted robbery and criminal possession of a weapon.

Police said the alleged shooter got into a dispute with the 32-year-old victim inside Middle Store Deli & Grocery on Woodfield Road and waited for the victim outside, where Cunningham allegedly shot him with a handgun, striking the victim in the shoulder and chest at 5:46 p.m. Thursday.

A witness reportedly told police that they say the suspect try to rob the victim before the suspect fled northbound on Woodfield Road.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries.

Cunningham will be arraigned Monday at First District Court in Hempstead.
