A 22-year-old man was shot in the leg Tuesday afternoon on N. Centre Avenue in Rockville Centre, and the suspect in the shooting is still on the run, officials said.
According to Village Spokesman Jeff Kluewer, the man was shot on the west side of North Centre Avenue midway between Old Mill Court and Maine Avenue around 2:15 p.m.
Kluewer said the victim was transported to South Nassau Communities Hospital and was in stable condition with non life-threatening injuries.
The Nassau County Police Department canine unit and helicopter services canvassed the area, but the suspect was not caught.
Village Administrator Keith Spadaro said this: "The investigation is ongoing and it appears that it was not random in nature."
