A Brooklyn man was arrested Wednesday morning, Feb. 1, and booked at the 105th Precinct in Queens Village for allegedly shooting at a group of people and wounding a teenager in Cambria Heights in late December.

Michael Tiru, 23, of Sheffield Avenue in the New Lots section, was apprehended in the confines of the 105th and charged with attempted assault and other crimes for brandishing a firearm and firing multiple times at the crowd on a commercial strip near the intersection of Linden Boulevard and 228th Street just before midnight on Sunday, Dec. 31. A 17-year-old boy sustained a non-fatal gunshot wound to the abdomen, police said. The victim was taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center for treatment.

In addition to attempted assault, Tiru was also charged with criminal possession of a loaded firearm and reckless endangerment. The investigation remains ongoing, according to the NYPD.
