The Nassau County Police believe the victim was shot near the intersection of Pinebrook  Avenue and Park Side Road shortly after 10 p.m. The cops are reporting that the gunman fled on foot, hoping over a fence on Pinebrook, while the victim attempted to track him down in his car before stopping to seek help at a nearby home.

The victim is being transported to Winthrop Hospital and police have taken possession of the vehicle he was driving. Nassau and Malverne Police are both canvassing the area, establishing a perimeter and blocking off traffic on Pinebrook, Eagle Avenue and Woodfield Road. A chopper is also circling above.

Around 11 p.m. seven officers along with canines began searching a wooded area in the vicinity.

If Shot Spotter can detect a bullet, survey the crime scene and summon emergency personnel within 7 seconds then why doesn't every neighborhood have it? Bea Maybe the county should install cameras at every entrance to your community like there are doing in Kings Point. Shot Spotter isn't installed on every street in communities that has it. It doesn't cover every inch of a community, andit doesn't track like gps the location of the shooter.

Hi I'll agree with any thing that might HELP but as long as EVERY community has this device. That means muttown, hampton, garden city etc.

Anonymous posters are cowards. We are all residents. Be a big man or woman and stand behind your words. Lakeview is being destroyed by gun toting criminals. Law abiding citizens should not be afraid of a camera. I am afraid that some people won't see the light until someone close to them is caught in the gunfire.

With all due respect....why would "EVERY" community get the device is "EVERY" community doesn't have and issue with shots being fired? Lynn Singleton
