The following information was supplied by the Lynbrook, Malverne and Nassau County Police Departments. A criminal charge is only an accusation, and does not indicate guilt.

A man was stabbed and shots were fired at a Baldwin High School football game last Friday.

According to Nassau County detectives, around 8:30 p.m., a 20-year-old and three 16-year-old males from Freeport were leaving a football game at Baldwin High School when two black males approached them in the parking lot.

One suspect pointed a black handgun at the victims and fired two shots, police said. One bullet entered a 1999 Ford Explorer that was parked in the parking lot. The vehicle was occupied by a 44-year-old male and his 8-year-old daughter at the time. There were no injuries as a result of the shooting.

The four male victims ran toward the school and became separated, police said. The 20-year-old victim was then punched and stabbed two times in the parking lot by an unknown suspect. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment of his injuries.

The first suspect is described to be between 5-foot-3 and 5-foot-6 tall, with a thin build and dark complexion, wearing a red Adidas sweat suit jacket, a red baseball cap and armed with a black handgun.

find it hard to believe that no one was able to id those suspects. If I lived in Baldwin, I would be pretty teed off over this incident.
