Police announced the arrest of five men after an alleged gang-related Westbury shooting in April sent one person to the hospital.
Between June and November, officials identified and arrested five suspects: Nharon Hicks, 33 and Jordan Ayala, 26, both of Long Beach in June; Terrance Little, 25 and Isaish Edwards, 25, both of Hempstead in October; and Wilmer Villata, 20, of Uniondale in November.
The shooting occurred at the Park West Nightclub at 741 Merrick Ave. Police say it was between rival Long Beach and Hempstead gang members.
The groups exchanged multiple rounds, during which an unidentified victim was shot in the shoulder and leg. The victim was taken to a nearby hospital.
Hicks and Ayala each face multiple counts of assault, attempted assault, criminal possession of a weapon and criminal use of a firearm, as well as attempted murder and conspiracy to commit second-degree murder.
Little, Edwards and Villata face charges of reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a firearm and criminal use of a firearm.
All five suspects await further court dates.
