A Long Island man was arrested Sunday for allegedly shooting a man and then trying to rob him after a dispute at a delicatessen in Lakeview, Nassau County police said.

Terence Cunningham, 27, was arraigned Jan. 20 on assault, attempted robbery and weapons charges. He was ordered held on $50,000 bail or $100,000 bond after an appearance at First District Court in Hempstead.

The charges against Cunningham stem from an incident last month at Middle Store Deli & Grocery on Woodfield Road in Lakeview. Police said Cunningham was arguing with a 32-year-old man in the deli before he left and waited for the man outside.

When the victim left the store, Cunningham pulled out a gun and shot him the shoulder and chest before trying to remove his property, a police news release said. Cunningham allegedly fled the scene on foot.

The victim, police said, was able to make it back into the store for help.

Fourth Squad detectives arrested Cunningham late Sunday and charged him with first-degree assault, first-degree criminal use of a firearm, first-degree attempted robbery and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

He is due back in court on Thursday.
