Corrections offier, 2 others busted in LIC bar shooting

A New York City Corrections Officer and two other men were arrested Monday night after allegedly shooting at employees of a bar.

Enrique Castillo, 34, a corrections officer at Riker's Island; Irving Carabello, 39; and William Jaffe, 33, were arrested Monday after fleeing Dunbar's, a bar at 29-32 Northern Blvd., said Detective Madelyn Galindo, a police spokesman. Police did not have addresses for the trio.

The three men had been arguing with three bouncers at Dunbar's, who tried to make them leave, Galindo said. The corrections officer allegedly fired a gun into the air to keep the bouncers at bay, and they fled the scene, Galindo said.

The bouncers started chasing them, and Castillo allegedly shot at one of the bouncers, but the bouncer was not injured, Galindo said.

Castillo was charged with reckless endangerment, menacing and discharging a firearm illegally, said Detective John Giammarino, a police spokesman. Carabello and Jaffe were charged with reckless endangerment and menacing, Giammarino said.
