The gunman who opened fire outside of Brooklyn's famed Peter Luger Steakhouse during a family feud Thursday night already has five open warrants against him in North Carolina.
Arkies Sommerville, 24, walked out of the restaurant after fighting with one of the 11 people at his table and allegedly opened fire from the sidewalk, hitting two innocent diners in the cross fire, the NYPD said.
Sommerville has been charged with two counts of attempted murder.
Cops have warned the public that Sommerville 'be considered armed and very dangerous.'
Sommerville was arrested a few blocks away from the steakhouse on Bedford Avenue and S. 10 Street and was in the hospital Friday morning for an 'unknown reason,' according to the NYPD, which delayed the formal charges.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
In addition to the attempted murder charges, he was also charged with two counts of criminal use of a firearm and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.
The gunshots sent diners scrambling. Travis, a diner from Arizona, told The New Daily News that when shots rang out, 'People hit the ground and were crawling on top of one another.'
