A 27-year-old Lakeview man was arrested Sunday night and charged in the December shooting of a man after a dispute inside a nearby deli, Nassau County police said.

Police said detectives found Terence Cunningham, of 413 Jefferson Ave., on Lehman Road in Lakeview at 11:24 p.m. and arrested him without incident. Cunningham was charged with first-degree assault, first-degree criminal use of a firearm, first-degree attempted robbery and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, police said.

He was arraigned Monday and held on a bail of $50,000 cash or $100,000 bond.

Police said that at about 5:45 p.m. on Dec. 16 Cunningham was involved in a dispute with a 32-year-old man inside the Middle Store Deli & Grocery on Woodfield Road in Lakeview, then waited outside that store for the victim to exit.

At that time, police said, Cunningham approached the man, who's identity was not released, and shot him in the shoulder and chest. Police said Cunningham then attempted to steal the victim's property -- and was seen by a witness fleeing north on Woodfield.

"A subsequent investigation by detectives led them to Cunningham ..." police said in a Monday news release.

In the release police did not disclose the condition of the victim.
