There is no such crime of "attempted murder" in new york state. There is however a charge of 1st degree assault. So please stop with the attempted murder stuff. Huntington used to be one of the best places in the United States to live, then in the 1970's another liberal pos president jimmy carter, by fiat chose to build the public housing project on new york ave, and started ripping the heart out of a once great community. You can pinpoint the decline of Huntington Station, and the town proper to the very day that project went up. The further decline of our once amazing town, can be traced to the once conservative government of huntington and suffolk county, being replaced with socialist 60's liberals. Their policies fail everywhere they are attempted, from moscow to detroit. Why anyone would expect anything else here in Huntington is beyond me. So, because the liberals in charge will not enforce the law's of the nation, huntington station has become a third world cesspool, full of illegal alians, fugitives and gang memebers. Wake up folks, that poison dripping from the station is bound to leak below main st.

This kid was a punk, a drug dealer who did someone wrong. He got smoked, that's what happens to pos gangsters, they go to prison or they die.

@ chuck - actually there is a crime based on the attempt to murder someone. check out NY penal law article 110. You are correct it is not literally called attempted murder but does allow another charge to run consecutively with assault.

The 21 year old that was shot lived on henry st for years. Im not sure if it was section 8 or not but does it really matter? His aunt took custody of him when he was a baby bc his mom was a crack addict. I knew him when he was little and he never had a chance at life. Its really a sad story. It bothers me when people judge and make remarks about something they know nothing about.
