Police arrested an upstate man for shooting a woman in the stomach on the streets of Long Island City last month.

According to police, at 6:56 a.m. on Jan. 26, 23-year-old Snooze Brown of Middletown, NY, got into an argument with his 19-year-old ex-girlfriend in the vicinity of 41st Avenue and 10th Street. During the argument, Brown displayed a firearm and shot toward his ex.

Law enforcement sources said the shot missed his ex-girlfriend, but struck a 28-year-old woman, a teacher who was walking from a nearby train station, in the stomach.

EMS responded to the scene and transported the victim to Cornell Hospital, where she was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. Police say that there was no prior relationship between Brown and the victim.

On Feb. 6, Brown was arrested and charged with attempted murder, assault, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon.
