A dispute between a landlord and a tenant erupted in gunfire in a Levittown home Tuesday afternoon, according to Nassau County Police.
Cops confirmed that shots fired at the home on Carter Lane near Bloomingdale Road ended in minor injuries to a landlord and a bystander.
A tenant, Rohan Kahn, 58, reportedly opened fire after a fight with their landlord just after 2 p.m. Tuesday, cops said.
"The tenant began to assault the landlord," NCPD's Insp. Kenneth Lack told Newsday. "The landlord attempted to leave the house and . . . [was] being chased by the tenant, who armed himself with a rifle. He fired several shots at the landlord as he was chasing him."
Officers confirmed that no one was hit by a bullet in the incident, but the landlord was injured by flying glass as a result of the gunfire. A woman who happened to be driving by was also struck by glass as bullets flew, police said.
The landlord and bystander both sustained minor injuries that were not life threatening, authorities said.
The tenant responsible for the gunfire returned to his home and stayed there before surrendering to police at about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.
