Locust Valley man charged with Easter gun discharge


Detectives of the Second Squad of the Nassau County Police Department arrested Andrius Guobys, 55, of Locust Valley around 3 p.m. on April 1.

After hearing the sound of a gunshot, neighbors saw Guobys, who lives at 8 15th St., holding what appeared to be a rifle. Guobys fired two shots out of the back door of his home. Police responded to the scene and placed the defendant under arrest without further incident. No injuries were reported.

Guobys was charged with third and fourth degree criminal possession of a weapon, first degree reckless endangerment, two counts of prohibited use of weapons and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child. Guobys was arraigned on April 2 in Hempstead’s First District Court, where his bail — which he did not post — was set at $12,500.
