Nassau County Police have taken into custody the second of two people they believe tried to shoot and kill a man in Freeport last month.

Cops said James Tobin, 23, and Ali Jones, 20, both of Freeport, shot a 23-year-old man in the early afternoon of Feb. 4.

Freeport Police were called to Randall Avenue in Freeport near Wallace Street after receiving reports of a shooting in the area, they reported. Responding officers found the victim bleeding from his stomach from gunshot wounds, cops said.

Five .38-caliber shell casings, one of which was in the victim’s clothing, were found at the scene, police reported.

The victim's status was not reported.

An investigation led to Tobin’s arrest on Feb. 5 and later led to Jones’ arrest on Thursday at 3:20 p.m., police reported. Both were charged with second-degree attempted murder.

If we are to read a story and have an intelligent opinion, more details should be included. Why was this "victim" shot? Was there a fight, were there drugs involved, did they know the victim and plan this or was it random? I know there are a lot of evil people in this world, but I would like to have a better understanding of why two 20 yr olds shot this man. There's some major info missing from this story.

@sal Anthony what's with the aspiring rapper comments? Is that what you think ALL rappers do? Do you even know what rap is? Probably NOT! Idiots are idiots no matter what they do, where their from, what they look like, what their name is. A white fool with a gun that shoots, is the same as a black fool with a gun that shoots !
