A North Massapequa man accused of firing a rifle at two of his neighbors’ homes was arraigned Monday.
Officers say a bullet hit the exterior of a neighboring home and another bullet entered a bedroom of a sleeping child and a living room in a second home.
No one was hurt during the incident.
After a brief standoff, the 57-year-old surrendered to police.
He faces nearly 70 counts, 58 of them are violent felonies connected to the shooting.
According to court documents, authorities found 14 firearms in a safe in the basement apartment. They also found 45 large capacity ammunition feed devices equipped to fire over a dozen rounds, two pounds of cocaine, Ziplock bags, measuring scales and a substance authorities believe to be ketamine.
Frigand was held on $2 million cash bail or $4 million bond.
A moving van was outside the Sussex Avenue home Monday removing items and furniture from the basement apartment.
