Officers from the 104th Precinct recently arrested the two suspects who were at large after shooting at a man in front of his Glendale home.

Police apprehended both Ruben Cortez, 19, and Jeremy Maldonado, 22, on May 3, just two days after the shooting.

The criminal complaint from the Queens District Attorney’s office states that, on May 1 at approximately 1:40 p.m., the victim saw Cortez walking down 80th Avenue toward him. While approaching the victim, Cortez allegedly pulled out a gun and fired multiple shots at the victim then fled the scene on foot.

Investigators collected five .380 caliber bullet casings and two bullet fragments in front of multiple residences along 80th Avenue, according to the complaint.

According to court records, Cortez has been charged with reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon and attempted murder. He is being held on $25,000 bond or cash bail and is next due to appear in court on May 18.

Maldonado’s case is sealed, authorities said.
