A Northern Westchester man is facing assault and an attempted murder charge in connection to an early morning shooting.
Mario Mieles, of Ossining, has been arraigned on an indictment on charges of attempted murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon - all felonies - after shooting another man in Ossining in February.
The indictment alleges that at approximately 4:45 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 10, Mieles shot a man with a semi-automatic pistol several times on Van Cortlandt Avenue in Ossining, Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr. announced on Monday.
The shooting victim was taken to an area hospital and survived, while Mieles fled the scene. Mieles’ victim suffered multiple gunshot wounds and remains in serious condition, Scarpino said. Mieles and his victim have known each other for years, the DA noted.
Mieles, 31, surrendered himself into police custody on Feb. 14 at the Birdsall-Fagan Police & Court Facility. He remains remanded into custody and is scheduled to appear in court on April 17.
