Daniels suffered life threatening injuries in the shooting but his current condition is unknown at this time.

His family tells News 8 that this was not the first time Daniels was shot; he was also shot two years ago.

After the shooting, a car crashed near Prospect Street and ended up on an Albertus Magnus College athletic field. Police have since towed the car from that field.

Vega was held on $750,000 bond, but was reduced to $600,000 when he was arraigned in court Wednesday. He is still held on bond and will reappear in court on July 3.

The cause of the shooting remains under investigation.
