Man charged in North Amityville shooting, say authorities

A Central Islip man has been held on bail in connection with an October shooting that left a man with serious injuries, Suffolk authorities said.

Bail for Rashad Woolridge, 25, was set at $500,000 cash or $1 million bond during his arraignment Tuesday on charges of first-degree assault and first-degree criminal use of a firearm.

Woolridge, of 34 Apple St., shot Christopher Sawyer, 29, of Copiague, in the right foot, hip and buttock on Oct. 20 in North Amityville, the Suffolk district attorney's office said.
