A 23-year-old man was arrested for shooting someone in a Corona parking lot.

A 23-year-old Brooklyn resident was arrested last week after he shot a man eight times in a Corona parking lot, police reported.

The shooting occurred at about 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 21 at the LeFrak City complex at 96-10 57th Ave. Katrell Dixon, 23, of Brooklyn shot 41-year-old David Rogers in the parking lot eight times, according to the criminal complaint.

Dixon shot Rogers with a .22-caliber pistol and continued to shoot him as Rogers began to run away. He suffered two gunshot wounds to his thigh, five to his butt, one to his hand and a fractured femur.

Rogers, who is from New Jersey, sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to Elmhurst Hospital.

A peace officer chased Dixon through the complex and into the basement and a police officer found the gun in a trash compactor.

Two of the 110th Precinct’s Neighborhood Coordination Officers, Kenneth McGarvey and Jessica Garcia, canvassed the area after the shooting and witnessed Dixon fleeing the scene.

The officers arrested Dixon, who was charged with second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and first-degree reckless endangerment. He is ordered back to court on Dec. 6.
