Police: Two Men Shot, One Fatally, in Gang-Related Shooting in Deer Park

One killed and another injured in shooting outside the Night Owl Lounge early Thursday, police say.

One man was killed and another seriously injured in what police are calling a gang-related shooting outside of Deer Park's Night Owl Lounge early Thursday morning. 

The shooting occurred in the parking lot of the bar, located at the corner of Long Island Avenue and Wright Avenue, at 2:22 a.m., police said. 

According to police, three people inside a white Cadillac pulled into the parking lot and two people in a group standing outside fired several shots at the vehicle.

The driver, identified by police as Jean Yves, 25, of Wyandanch, was stuck and later pronounced dead at the hospital. A passenger, who was struck in the chest, was being treated and his condition is unknown at this time, police said. A third person in the vehicle was not injured.

The group that included the two shooters fled the scene in two vehicles, police said.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call the Homicide Squad at 631-852-6392 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.

The Night Owl is a known neighborhood $hithole, u only go there to but drugs. Every neighborhood in LI has these types of places.

This is what happens when all of the trash from Wyandanch, Central Islip, and Brentwood start moving in on the safe neighborhoods. They destroyed their own towns and now they are starting to terrorize the surrounding areas with home invasions, robberies, assaults, "knockout game", and now shootings. And in response to "Jacquie", it does not matter if it is gang related or not. They are THUGS that should all be thrown in jail and/or shot. Putting these animals in a cage would benefit all of society.

Whether it was gang related or not a mother lost her son so my prays go out to her and her family. It's sad that things like this have to happen. It has nothing to do with the town there from. You shouldn't judge anyone without knowing all of the facts. God bless the young man eho lost his life and bless the one who is fighting for his.

That place looks dangerous at 2PM, imagine what it's like at 2:22 AM.

What a shocker , you can paint any picture you want to but the truth remains, and guess what the common denominator is and always will be.

Oh we don't have time to worry about the thousand of young blacks that are killing each other in the streets in this country. It's Michelle's 50th birthday and she just got back from Hawaii after 4weeks vacation. 4 Americans died in Benghazi nothing to see here? We gotta concentrate going after Chris Christi and that dam traffic jam on the GWB for two days!!!!!!! Do you understand democrat liberals know????????

First of all, being out that time of the morning when you should be sleeping to prepare for work only shows a bunch of losers looking for trouble or people who don't have a life. If you live by the gun, you'll eventually die by the gun.
