Suspect Arrested for Fatal Hempstead Shooting


U.S. Marshals and Nassau County police have apprehended a suspect wanted for allegedly killing a 23-year-old Uniondale man in the accused gunman’s hometown of Hempstead last month, authorities said.

Shavon Goins, 24, was charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Ravino Bailey.

Homicide Squad detectives said Goins shot Bailey, who was found suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest while lying on Chamberlain Street in the vicinity of Boylston Street at about 2 a.m. Saturday, March 24.

The victim was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly later.

Goins will be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Hempstead.
