New York State Police are investigating after a man was critically injured Thursday morning by gunfire at the Shinnecock Indian Reservation on eastern Long Island, the agency said an April 4 news advisory.

Investigators said they received a call around 6 a.m. Thursday reporting a man had been shot on Old Soldiers Road of the Shinnecock Nation. When state troopers arrived to the scene, they learned the unidentified 36-year-old male victim was taken by private vehicle to Southampton Hospital, a news release said.

The victim underwent surgery Thursday for “several gunshot wounds,” authorities said, and was listed Friday in critical, but stable condition.

A spokeswoman for the Shinnecock Indian Nation did not respond to an email requesting commenting on the shooting.

State Police said detectives are still investigating the incident and are now asking anyone with information to call the State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigations at Riverside at 631-208-9002. All calls will be kept confidential.
