A Brooklyn man was arraigned in Queens Criminal Court on Monday and charged with attempted murder, assault and other crimes in connection to the Oct. 21 shooting in front of a Long Island City strip club.

Jeffrey Almanzar, 29, of 50th Street in Sunset Park, was arrested on the night of Sunday, Jan. 7 and booked for shooting a 41-year-old man in front of Sugardaddy’s Gentlemen’s Club, located at 51-07 27th St., during the early morning hours of Saturday, Oct. 21.

Police from the 108th Precinct in Long Island City responded to a 911 call of a person shot in front of the club just before 3:30 a.m. where they found the victim with a gunshot wound to his right leg. It was reported that a fight occurred between two groups at the location prior to the shots being fired.
