PELHAM, N.Y. -- The New Rochelle man who was allegedly shot six times by an off-duty NYPD officer in Pelham on Tuesday night, April 29, has been identified as Joseph Felice, 47, and he is expected to recover, according to LoHud.com.
Police are reportedly calling the attack "completely random" and can find no connection between Felice and Officer Brendan Cronin of Yonkers who allegedly shot him with his NYPD-issued Glock 9mm.
Cronin is reportedly still being held as he has not been able to post the $150,000 cash bail or $250,000 bond. So far he has refused to speak with investigators, according to the article.
As previously reported, Felice was shot six times in the torso, arm and hand while riding as a passenger in a car on his way to his home in New Rochelle.
Cronin, 27, allegedly opened fire, unprovoked, on the car when it came to a stop at a traffic light at Lincoln and Sixth Avenue about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Police and Internal Affairs are trying to determine if alcohol was involved in the incident. Cronin refused to take a breath test, according to police.
Cronin faces first-degree assault charges.
