Zeldin Lawn Shooter Arrested and Facing Severe Charges, Per DA Tierney

-

Noah Green, 18, the primary suspect in the Shirley shooting, was arrested last week

The shooting took place outside former Congressman Lee Zeldin’s home. His twin daughters were inside doing some homework when they heard the commotion outside. They immediately responded and called 9-1-1. Two 17-year-old males were injured in the shooting but are in stable condition, authorities said.

Green has since been charged with criminal possession of a weapon in the Second Degree, a class C violent felony and Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the Fourth Degree, which is a class E felony. 

District Attorney Ray Tierney has been successful in keeping his promises to be tough on crime and advocating for the safety of his constituents. 

The court has since released papers indicating that Green was seen leaving his Shirley residence on Monday and got into a black Honda that was reported stolen. Officers approached him at the scene and he tried to flee by jumping onto the hood of the police car. 

Evidence has matched the weapon Green used to the one of the Shirley Shooting, the DA office said. 

Green was arraigned and ordered to be held on a $750,000 cash bail, $1.5 million bond or $7.5 million partially secured bond— he isn’t walking free.

New York State Assemblyman Doug Smith of Holbrook said, “We are fortunate to have an experienced prosecutor in District Attorney Ray Tierney who has put together a talented team of crime solvers able to build bullet proof cases. In this situation, they were able to put together the facts and correctly charge this individual and hold him under bailable charges – allowing them to keep Green behind bars.”

If convicted of the top count, the defendant Green is facing a minimum sentence of three-and-a-half years in prison. Should he be further sentenced, he faces an additional one and one-third to four years in prison.

In a statement, Tierney said the investigation is still ongoing and there are more developments expected in the future.
