A Long Island man was arrested on attempted murder charges Thursday in connection with a shooting in Freeport, Nassau County police said March 13.

Ali Jones, 20, of 30 Wallace Ave., Freeport, was arraigned Friday a second-degree attempted murder charge at First District Court in Hempstead. Nassau County District Court Judge Joy Watson ordered him held on more than $10 million bail.

Freeport police officers were called to a shooting on Feb. 4 and found a 23-year-old man lying in the street along Randall Avenue near Wallace Street. The victim, police said, had sustained multiple gunshot wounds and was bleeding from his abdomen.

At the scene, investigators found four .380 caliber shell casings and later recovered a fifth casing among the victim’s clothing.

A day after the shooting, First Squad detectives arrested James Tobin, 23, of Freeport on a second-degree attempted murder charge.

Police said Tobin “did act in consort” with Jones and “intended to cause the death of the victim.” Nassau County detectives released a media advisory last week naming Jones as a suspect in the shooting.

He is due back in court next week.
