"The prosecutor asked for $1 million cash bail, a $2 million insurance bond, and $10 million partially secured bond, which was granted by the judge. The defense called the bail excessive," Fox News reported.
"While requesting bail, the prosecutor cited the felony weapons charges, the resisting arrest charge in which Green allegedly reached for a gun in his pocket, and other additional violence linked to the charges associated with the weapon and stolen vehicle," it added.

"New York Republican gubernatorial candidate Rep. Lee Zeldin had a shock to the system on Sunday when two people were shot outside his Long Island home while his teenage twin daughters were inside," Breitbart News reported following last month's shooting.
"According to Zeldin, his two daughters, 16-year-olds Mikayla and Arianna, were on inside doing their homework when the shots broke out in front of their home. He and his wife, Diana, were in the car returning from the Bronx Columbus Day parade in Morris Park," it added.

The investigation remains ongoing in the shooting incident that came as Zeldin pushed a tougher response to growing crime problems in the city.
The case will remain important despite Zeldin's loss in his run against New York Gov. Kathy Hochul.
With Democrats continuing to hold strong in the state, it is unclear whether changes will be made to strengthen criminal justice or not in New York and beyond.
