Earlier this afternoon, RIOC Public Safety chief Kevin Brown confirmed the shooting, and RIOC has now added details in an official statement.

"On Thursday, October 22nd, at 12:48 AM, there was a shooting incident on the north end of Roosevelt Island, located in The Octagon parking lot (888 Main St.). The victim, a 23-year-old male, is in stable condition and is not a resident of the island. Public Safety was called to the scene and is working in collaboration with the NYPD’s 114th Precinct to investigate."

RIOC did not confirm the victim's identity or add additional details. It is known, however, that he was shot in the arm, and NYPD is looking for a Lexus in connection with the shooting.

We will update you as additional details become available.
