An altercation between two East Meadow neighbors Friday night ended with police shooting a suspect who they say threatened officers with two guns, Nassau County police said.

Jason Wissel, 49, was charged with menacing and three counts of criminal possession of a weapon.

Police said Wissel was involved in an argument over parking with a neighbor, whom he allegedly threatened with a gun, police said.

Officers from nearby precincts as well as the Emergency Service Unit, K-9, and Bureau of Special Operations responded after police were called.

After attempting to make contact with Wissel, police said he emerged from the house allegedly armed with a sawed off shotgun and a long rifle.

“The suspect pointed these weapons at approaching officers placing them in fear for their lives,” police said in a news release.

Officers fired at Wissel, causing minor injuries, police said.

After receiving treatment at Nassau University Medical Center, Wissel was arrested, police said. It’s unclear how many shots were fired.

Investigators also discovered several weapons and a cache of ammunition inside the house, police said.

Wissel was scheduled to be arraigned Saturday at First District Court in Hempstead.
