Description of Incident:
Patrons at a 23-hour lounge scattered after a rare morning shooting that left one man with a gunshot wound and his girlfriend lucky that she escaped injury.
The incident happened just after 9:30 a.m. March 1 at Sweeney’s Lounge in Pembroke Park. Surveillance video shows that revelers winding down a night of partying were hanging out around the bar and pool table when 23-year-old Andy Cruz and his 19-year-old girlfriend, Jillian Terrero, walked outside after a group of young men. According to Cruz, one of the men offered to sell him drugs. Cruz declined, and an argument ensued. Then one snatched Terrero’s cell phone from her hands and fired two shots at her. Both missed Terrero, but Cruz was shot once in the upper thigh. He was treated and later released from the hospital.
The shooter is seen clearly on video. He is a short, black male in a red T-shirt with facial hair and long dreadlocks.
