Cops seek man in party shooting

Police were seeking the shooter who fired a bullet that went through the left calf of a 19-year-old man late Tuesday during a party at the victim's North Amityville home.

Darryl Walker was outside his Smith Street home about 10:45 p.m. when he was shot in the left calf, said First Precinct Det. Lt. Robert Edwards. "We don't believe it was a random shooting," he said. "We believe he was targeted."

The motive for the shooting was not clear, police said.

Detectives ask anyone with information about the shooting to call them at 631-854-8152 or Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS.
