MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- A suspect from Fishkill has been apprehended in connection to the weekend shooting at a Mount Vernon strip club.

Shortly before 3 a.m. on Monday morning, police responded to Sue’s Rendezvous - a destination that has been under debate and discussion in the city for years - after repeated reports of a 25-year-old woman being involved in a dispute that spilled into the street and turned violent outside of the club, ending when the victim suffering a gunshot wound to her leg.

The victim was transported to a nearby hospital and treated for her injury. She has since been released.

According to the Mount Vernon Police Department, Allen Williams, Jr. was arrested on Monday afternoon and charged with criminal possession of a weapon, which was recovered at the scene of the shooting. Further charges are possible, pending the outcome of the ongoing investigation.

While police investigated the shooting on Monday morning, a section of Gramatan Avenue was shut down for hours to traffic.

“Our Quality of Life Task Force will continue to focus on this establishment and others like it that fail to secure their premises and their patrons,” Mount Vernon Police Commissioner Ron Fatigue said. “Thankfully, there were no serious injuries. Police presence was strong in the area and the response to the scene was swift.

“Several key players are being questions and a weapon was recovered at the scene.”
