Rented Recourse

Shots were fired outside of 1 Carter Place in Levittown after a discrepancy between a 58-year-old tenant and his landlord escalated into a physical altercation. 

 

According to police, the altercation started when the tenant, Rohan J. Kahn, pulled the landlord into the apartment, punched him in the face and kicked him. 

 

The victim, 51, was able to run from the apartment but was followed by Kahn, now armed with a rifle. 

 

Police said at least five rounds were fired, striking two cars on Bloomingdale Road and Carter Place. 

 

Police stated that the shooter missed Kahn, but struck glass, injuring the landlord and a second female victim, 54, who was driving on Bloomingdale Road. According to investigators, the impact from the glass caused abrasions to the landlord's face.

 

When police arrived at the scene, at approximately 2:15 p.m., the defendant had barricaded himself in his apartment, at which point Nassau County Emergency Services along with the Bureau of Special Operations, K-9, aviation and hostage negotiators were called in. 

 

Subsequently, the Island Trees School District was placed on lockdown. The Levittown Public Schools would also place Summit and Northside elementary schools, as well as Division Avenue High School, on lockdown for the duration of the incident, which lasted just over two hours. 

 

At 4:35 p.m. police placed Kahn under arrest with no further injuries reported. 

 

Kahn has been charged with second degree attempted murder, criminal use of a firearm in the first degree, and two counts of reckless endangerment.

The smell of pine, wood and scented candles greet customers with a sense of home as they cross the wooden threshold to the Amish Craft Barn in Seaford. There they will find dolls, birdhouses, quilts, ceramic turkeys, hand-painted Christmas trees, oak furniture and other seasonal and holiday tchotchkes.

 

Massapequa natives Frank and Pam Hoerauf started The Amish Craft Barn & Gift Shoppe 20 years ago after an inspiring visit to Pennsylvania.

Holidays increase daily congestion 

While parking around LIRR train stations is typically a challenge, even on a regular work day, the holidays create more of a struggle for commuters in search of parking spots. LIRR spokesman Salvatore Arena said that ridership between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day increases by at least 10 percent; last year it was by 12 percent. Though the MTA is adding more trains to the schedule, that doesn’t ease the parking situation, which is operated not by the LIRR, but by individual municipalities in each town. 

 

“Every station is different,” Arena said. “A good part of our parking is in the hands of the locality. They set the rules essentially.”


Sports

The Island Trees Cross Country teams continue their improvement in 2014. This year the girls’ team has a record of 8-2 and with their victories over Clarke and Wheatley High Schools, they clinched the Division Championship for the first time in Island Trees High School history.

 

The girls are led by senior Captain Angela Brocco who has been rewriting the girl’s record boards. Brocco set the school record for the Warwick Valley 5000 meter course on Sept. 20. 

This season the Girls’ Varsity Soccer Team at Division Avenue has the rare ability to fill every position on the field with a member of the senior class. All 11 seniors have made contributions to the success of this year’s squad.
