GLEN COVE - A Hempstead man is being charged with attempted murder in connection with a violent home invasion in Glen Cove.
Police say Darrin Sims broke into a home on Eldridge Place two weeks ago and shot a 22-year-old man who lives there. News 12 Long Island learned during Sims' arraignment that the victim lost part of his lung as a result of his injuries.
Authorities say Sims and his accomplice David Schuler targeted the house. A few days after the home invasion, the victim's brother was arrested for drug possession with intent to sell. Police don't believe the victim was tied to the drugs.
