Central Islip, NY - May 16, 2018 - Suffolk County District Attorney Timothy D. Sini today announced the arrest of a man in connection with a fatal altercation outside a nightclub in Lindenhurst on March 31.
 
Hector Gonzalez, 27, of Huntington Station, an alleged member of the Latin Kings street gang, was arraigned in Suffolk County Court in Central Islip today on a charge of Murder in the Second Degree. The defendant was remanded and is due back in court on May 21.
 
“The District Attorney’s Office remains committed to eradicating dangerous street gangs from our communities and cracking down on senseless gun violence,” District Attorney Sini said. “We will do everything in our power to bring this individual, a self-proclaimed Latin Kings gang member, to justice.”
 
At approximately 3:20 a.m. on March 31, Gonzalez allegedly shot Herminio Torres, 25, of New Jersey, during an altercation outside of 105 Grados, located at 105 Sunrise Highway. Torres was transported by the Lindenhurst Fire Department to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip where he was pronounced dead.
 
Another individual was also shot and three individuals were stabbed during the altercation. The four victims were treated at local hospitals for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Suffolk County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
 
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Daryl Levy, of the Homicide Bureau.
 
A criminal charge is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
