The White Plains Police Department announced it has arrested a second suspect in connection with the Sept. 2 shooting on Lake Street in the city.

On Sept. 9 at approximately 5 p.m., 18-year-old Peekskill resident Dominique Hospie surrendered to White Plains detectives in the company of his attorney, Public Safety Commissioner David Chong announced Monday.

“I believe that Mr. Hospie felt the pressure and our pursuit of him was relentless,” Chong said in an e-mail. “For him to turn himself in was for the best.”

Hospie was charged with first-degree assault, second-degree criminal use of a firearm and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

On Sept. 2, a young man was gunned down near Delfino Park at around 4 p.m., shot in the arm and leg and left bleeding on the sidewalk on Lake Street. He was taken to Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, where his condition improved. He is still recovering from his wounds, Chong said.

A day after the shooting, 18-year-old Lake Street resident Juan Jose Gell was arrested while police announced they were searching for Hospie, identified as a person of interest at the time.
