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.

Free Case Review




  • My experience during the time of negotiations was extremely positive. Josh Sandberg handled my lawsuit with the utmost integrity. He returned all my phone calls in a timely manner and answered all my questions. Josh made things less stressful. I would highly recommend Josh and the entire staff at Cellino Law.


  • 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.


  • I am writing this letter to say how much I appreciate your services pertaining to my case. Your injury attorney took a hands-on approach and left me fully informed at all times as to where my case was going as well as how much ground we had to cover; leaving the final decisions in my hands but making sure that I knew all of the risks involved in the choices. I have dealt with a few law firms in my life on various different cases and this is the first time that I never had to call and/or track down my lawyer… because of this, I have and will continue to recommend Cellino Law to my friends and associates.


  • This is to express our gratitude to you and your team in helping us and Stephanie navigate through the legal process following her car accident. We are very satisfied with the outcome and grateful for your hard work and attention to details. We fell confident that with this compensation, Stephanie will be able to move forward with her studies and her life with the ability to care for some of her health needs resulting from the injuries sustained following her car accident. Thank you very much and may God continue to bless your efforts.

  • I really just wanted to say thank you so much for taking my case, answering all my questions, and mostly for being very patient with me. I feel that without you and Roza I would not have been able to get anything at all. I hope to never need a lawyer again, but if I do I will definitely want you both working for me. Again thank your for you hard work, time and patience.


  • 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.
