QUEENS — An ex-con was arrested Thursday night, nearly six months after he opened fire on another man outside a busy Sunnyside nightclub, wounding four bystanders, police said.
Traevon Robinson, 23, who had violated the parole he was on for a 2011 Queens burglary, was picked up at his South Jamaica home for the Oct. 19 shooting outside Allure Club and Lounge, 33-02 Queens Blvd., an NYPD spokeswoman said.
Robinson, who can be seen in a gray sweater in video released by police, faced charges of felony assault and reckless endangerment, police said.
Robinson and another man, who had not been arrested as of Friday morning, were arguing outside the watering hole about 10:45 p.m. when they drew their guns and started shooting, NYPD officials said.
Four clubgoers were hit by the crossfire, police said. A 37-year-old man was hit in the chest while the other three, a 19-year-old girl, 23 and 28-year-old men were each hit once in the leg, police said.
They brought themselves to area hospitals, officials said.
An NYPD spokeswoman said she did not know why Robinson was arguing with the other shooter.
Robinson was convicted in 2011 for a burglary and served about 2 years and 8 months behind bars until he was released on parole in April 2014, records show.
NYPD officials did not have a description of the second suspect.
