A Huntington Hospital staff member notified police that a 15-year-old boy was being treated in the emergency room at approximately 3:15 p.m. on Saturday, July 8, with a gunshot wound to his left hand.

Detectives from the Suffolk County Police Department’s Second Squad discovered a .22 caliber phantom gun at the teen’s Huntington Station residence on Foxwood Drive Eas after investigating and arrested him about three hours later.

The 15-year-old was charged with:

  • possession of weapons,
  • gun possession crimes,
  • criminal use of firearms,
  • It is illegal for a person under the age of 16 to possess a weapon,
  • The danger of recklessness.

He is scheduled to appear at Family Court in Central Islip at a later date.
