Two assailants picked on the wrong guy when they confronted a man exiting his car in his driveway in West Hempstead on Monday night, police said.
The 35-year-old homeowner was armed -- carrying his licensed Glock 9 mm pistol.
When one of the assailants fired at the man he fired back. No one was hit by the gunfire on Oakford Street, before the pair fled.
Nassau County police said one of the attackers, Jose D. Celis, 30, of Woodfield Road, West Hempstead, was arrested on nearby Elm Street after a search by Bureau of Special Operations officers. Police are still searching for the second attacker in the incident.
The attack occurred at 9:25 p.m. Monday as the homeowner exited his car and was confronted by the two men.
The victim's name is being withheld due to the nature of the assault. Police said the man was a "licensed pistol holder," but could not immediately say if his pistol license -- or the attempted robbery and assault -- was related to his business.
Celis was charged with second-degree attempted murder, first-degree attempted robbery, first-degree criminal use of a firearm and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, according to police.
He is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in First District Court in Hempstead.

Who cares if it was related to his business, it is related to his personal safety.
but could not immediately say if his pistol license -- or the attempted robbery and assault -- was related to his business.

Sounds like range time, would have saved the police time in looking for the second suspect.
