Roosevelt Field Mall shooting suspect, Oliver Lee, arraigned

Police say the suspect involved in a shooting at the Roosevelt Field Mall on Long Island Tuesday has been identified and is facing charges.



They say 21-year-old Oliver Lee faces first-degree robbery, weapons possession and multiple counts of assault charges.



According to investigators, a mall worker was shot when Lee's gun went off after a struggle with a security guard. 



Officials say the mall employee, a 67-year-old man, was shot in the arm and rushed to the hospital where he is in serious but stable condition.



Officials say they are grateful the security guard stepped in when he did.
