    I live on Long Island and this is big news around these parts.

    The SCPD has announced that they have no leads and no suspect. I think it was a hit. You don't get as wealthy and powerful as he is without stepping on a few toes ...

    Been watching this on my local news.
    Guy lucked out. The bullet didn't penetrate his skull, it skipped like a stone between the skin and bone and exited. Same thing happened to a guy I grew up with when he was in Iraq, he has a wicked scar but is otherwise OK.

    Wow, so it was more than one person, that's got to be pretty rare. This is like something out of Law & Order.

    No way the team drove there w/o tags; too much of a risk of getting pulled over with unreg'd cars and probably unlic'd handguns.

    Even using stolen plates is a risk; Suffolk PD must have "plate-hunter"-equipped cruisers:

    "It takes more than a masked coward with a gun to stop Gary Melius."

    "Melius, the owner of Oheka Castle in Huntington, was shot in the head outside the high-end hotel and catering hall this week in what ranks as one of the most high-profile assassination attempts in New York history."

    "Miraculously, the point-blank shooting resulted in only two graze wounds. Melius was rushed to the hospital by his daughter and has spent the week recovering from emergency surgery."

    "While few details have emerged about the shooting – a full-on police investigation is underway – the Long Island business community has been buzzing all week."

    Oheka owner Gary Melius stable after surgery Saturday

    Gary Melius, the Oheka Castle owner shot Monday in an apparent attempt on his life, had eye surgery Saturday morning at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, according to a family friend.

    Melius, 69, underwent the surgery to "address damage done during the attack," said Gary Lewi, a friend of Melius who once served as a spokesman for former U.S. Sen. Alfonse D'Amato.

    "Six months after a Long Island political power broker was shot by a masked gunman in a bungled assassination attempt on the grounds of his estate, Oheka Castle, police still have no leads."

    "Victim Gary Melius told us, “There are 20 people working on this investigation full-time, but there are no leads. They can’t find the owner of the car and they don’t have the license plate.”
