ROOSEVELT, N.Y. — Three people were arrested on Monday after a gun was pointed at a woman, two toddlers and a teenager on Long Island, Nassau County police said Tuesday.

Officers responded to the scene in Roosevelt around 6:20 p.m. after a 911 caller reported someone had displayed a gun.

A 22-year-old woman told police a group of people in a silver Nissan drove past and threatened their lives while pointing a gun at them. A 1-year-old, 3-year-old and 17-year-old were with her at the time, police said.

The officers canvassed the area and located the vehicle a short time later, according to police.

Shatoya Newine, 19, was arrested along with a juvenile male, police said. The male suspect is not being identified because he is a minor.

A loaded gun was recovered from the car, police said.

Another person in the vehicle, Tianna Carr, 20, of Uniondale, was also arrested for an unrelated charge of bail jumping, according to police.

Newine, also of Uniondale, was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of a firearm, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, and two counts of menacing, police said. She was expected to be arraigned Tuesday.

The juvenile male was charged with two counts each of menacing and endangering the welfare of a child, according to police. He will appear in family court on July 27.
