Police officers arrested a 63-year-old homeless man after he allegedly shot at the two employees inside Crossbay Express Smoke & Vape Shop Convenience Store, located at 137-02 Cross Bay Blvd.

The homeless man, Steven Cohen, had gotten into a argument with the store employees and pulled out a gun, police said.
