HUNTINGTON - Officials say surveillance video from Oheka Castle is providing more clues about Monday's shooting of owner Gary Melius. 

Sources tell Newsday, two cars, a black sedan and a Jeep carrying the shooter, were both seen on the tape. It is believed the sedan was a lookout vehicle. 

The video also reportedly shows the masked gunman trying to fire three times, but the gun misfires after the first shot. 

Melius is recovering at North Shore-LIJ in Manhasset. 

Suffolk DA Tom Spota visited Melius in the hospital yesterday.
