Patrick Mendoza released on bail

Patrick Mendoza, who has been held on charges stemming from a shooting on Hanover Street last July, was released on bail last week.

Mendoza turned himself in to police from a treatment facility on the Cape on 21 July after a nine day search for him following the shooting. At a dangerousness hearing in October, a Suffolk County Superior Court Judge ruled that he should remain behind bars until at least 1 May because he remained potential threat to society.
