Several shooting incidents in New York were reported over the past two days. Five people were shot, one of whom did not survive, in three different incidents across the city on October 27 and 28, NYPD reported.  

Marvin Carroway, a thirty-four-year-old man was shot in the head in the lobby of his building, in NYCHA’s Hughes Houses on Sutter Avenue near Mother Gaston Boulevard in Brownsville. The incident happened shortly after midnight, the police said.

A resident found his body and reported the incident, the police said.

The man was taken to Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center, where he was declared dead.

About 10 p.m. on Tuesday, sixteen-year-old Amir Patterson was fatally shot on Kingsborough Third Walk near Michael Griffith Street, the police informed. The teenager was taken to Interfaith Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

The police discovered three shell casings at the scene.

Sometimes before 9 p.m., two men (one eighteen-year-old and the other nineteen-year-old) were critically injured in a drive-by shooting on Findlay Avenue near East 167th Street in Morrisania following a dispute. The eighteen-year-old was shot in his chest and neck and the older teenager was shot in his jaw, the police reported. 

EMS took both men to Lincoln Medical Center.

A twenty-year-old man was also shot once in his right hand and transported to the same hospital by private means.

The suspect drove off in a grey van after the shooting, police said.

Personal injuries of this type are dangerous and could easily end up fatally. Besides the immediate medical help, you should seek legal help. Being injured on purpose is a crime and you have the right to file a lawsuit and seek a compensation claim for your injuries and damages.

  • Thank you for your help in settling the case of my father's accident. I could always count on you to answer my questions honestly and in terms I could understand. If all lawyers at Cellino Law are like you, I understand why they are an A-1 law firm.


  • Mark Kochanowicz is from far the best attorney you can have. Mark treats you like a friend more than a client. He truly cares and go the extra mile for you and your case, contacts you to update you in regards to your case and keep you informed at all times. Mark represented me twice and settled my cases for way more than I expected. I highly recommend Mark Kochanowicz because he is just the best on what he does!!! Thank you Mark!!!!


  • I highly recommend Cellino Law to anyone involved in a car crash. I worked with Michael Lovecchio, and had a wonderful experience given the circumstances. He was very attentive, and got the best possible outcome I could have wanted.


  • Joe and I just wanted to send you this note thanking you for the professional way you handled our lawsuit. Your kindness was extremely appreciated in a very difficult time. When we found out the people that caused the accident had no insurance, we thought our chances of receiving any settlement was nonexistent. Once we met with you and released you were able to help us our minds were put at ease. Your aggressive manner of handling the case exceeded our expectations. Please feel free to use us as a reference. Thank you so much and best wishes,

    Danielle and Joe

  • I am writing to let you know what an outstanding job George Gridelli did for me in my personal injury lawsuit. His professionalism and expertise were evident at our first metting and he and his paralegal Diane D'Andrea took care of me as if I was a friend and not merely a client. They both went above and beyond for me in so many ways that it would be too numerous to list and I am grateful to have had such an exemplary team represent me. When working with George and watching him in court he personified to me what a lawyer is supposed to be - an honest, extremely compentent man who helped guide me through the legal system. I could not have obtained better representation anywhere else at any price. To me that says a lot abut you and your firm's integrity. Thank you again for representing me and for having such stellar individuals working for you! I will continue to recommend your firm.


  • I just want to let you know that I did receive my settlement check. More importantly, I want to thank you again for all you did for both me and my family. I could not be more pleased with my experience at Cellino Law. From the moment I first spoke with you I felt comfortable - you took a sincere interest in my case, clearly explained the process and effected a quick settlement. From this day forward, when someone asks if I can recommend a good lawyer I will, without hesitation, say "Cellino Law". Thanks again.
