Chase Ends in Five Arrests on Gun, Drug Charges


Five individuals were arrested on gun and drug charges after a police chase following a shooting outside of a Levittown night club early Saturday morning, Nassau police said.

Officers responded to a call of shots fired outside of Ikon Lounge on Hempstead Turnpike and upon arrival they found spent .40- and .45-caliber shell casings at 12:54 a.m. The officers were tipped that the five individuals had fled westbound on Hempstead Turnpike on to the Wantagh Parkway heading south in a Cadillac Escalade and a BMW.

The BMW was stopped while speeding on the Southern State Parkway. The driver, 27-year-old Korrin Walton of Freeport, was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, unlawful possession of marijuana and traffic violations.
