Gordon Heights, NY - August 22, 2018 - Suffolk County Police last night arrested a man following a shooting in Gordon Heights.
Sixth Precinct officers responded to a 911 report of a shooting at the residence located at 108 Gray Ave. at 8:16 p.m. on Tuesday, August 21. When officers arrived, they found a man, Courtney Clarke, had been shot four times, twice in each leg. Clarke had been involved in an argument with Donovan Felder, which led to Felder shooting Clarke with a 9mm handgun. Felder then fled the scene.
