Police have arrested two Jamaica men in connection to a botched robbery attempt that led to the shooting of a Hollis man last month.

Donte Frasier, 23, of 111th Avenue and Avery Mitchell, 22, of 160th Street were booked Dec. 5 for the Nov. 19 shooting that took place on 197th Street.

At around 2:40 p.m. that afternoon, police said, an unknown man holding a package walked up to a residence on 197th Street while two other men hid behind the front fence. When a 12-year-old boy answered the door, the suspect stated that he had a package.

A 50-year-old man then approached the door from the inside and the suspect tried to push his way into the house. When the victim attempted to fight back by pushing the suspect out of his house, one of the men who was hiding behind the fence pulled out a gun and fired toward the victim, who was struck in the thigh.

The suspects then fled southbound on 197th Street. The victim was taken to Jamaica Hospital in stable condition and has since been released.

Frasier was charged with two counts of attempted robbery, one count of assault, one count of reckless endangerment and one count criminal possession of a weapon. Mitchell was charged with two counts of attempted criminal possession of a weapon.

The investigation is ongoing.
