Eugene Sherrod, 40, is charged with Assault 1st Degree.
Suffolk County Police arrested a man after he shot and critically injured his half-brother during an argument in Central Islip.
Third Precinct officers last night responded to a 911 report of a man shot at a residence on Irving St. When officers arrived, they found Daniel Davis in the driveway of the residence with a gunshot wound to his neck. Davis, 31, of Mastic, was transported via Central Islip-Hauppauge Volunteer Ambulance to Southside Hospital in Bay Shore in critical but stable condition.
Following an investigation, Third Squad detectives determined Davis was shot by his half-brother, Eugene Sherrod, during a verbal dispute in front of Sherrod’s residence. Sherrod then fled the scene in a Hyundai Santa Fe. Highway Patrol officers located the Hyundai on Express Drive North in Medford and arrested Sherrod.
Detectives charged Sherrod, 40, with Assault 1st Degree. He was overnight at the Third Precinct and was arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip.
A criminal charge is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
