Freeport Duo Charged With Attempted Murder

Two men have been arrested for shooting and seriously wounding a 23-year-old man in the suspects’ hometown of Freeport last month, Nassau County police said.

James Tobin, 23, and 20-year-old Ali Jones were each charged with second-degree attempted murder.

Police said the two men shot the victim in the abdomen on Randall Avenue near Wallace Street at 1:10 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 4.

The victim was treated for his injuries at a nearby hospital.

Investigators found four .380 caliber shell casings at the scene and a fifth shell casing found in the victim’s clothing.

First Squad detectives alleged that the duo “intended to cause the death of the victim,” they said in a news release.

Tobin was arrested a day after the shooting and was ordered held without bail. Jones was apprehended this week and will be arraigned Friday at First District Court in Hempstead.
