NYC: Peter Luger shooting suspect once arrested for pulling fake gun at McDonald’s: sources

The suspect busted for allegedly opening fire at the famed Peter Luger steakhouse was previously arrested as a teen for pulling a fake gun outside a McDonald’s play area, police sources told The Post.

The suspect — identified by sources as Arkies Sommerville, 24 — was arrested soon after fleeing the 9:45 p.m. Thursday shooting sparked by a family feud at the Brooklyn eatery.

After a fight among a table of 11 that spilled outside, he allegedly fired at his rival — but instead injured two outdoor diners, sources have said.

Sommerville was busted after his cousin pointed him out, with the firearm recovered by garbage around the block, sources said. He had not been charged as of early Friday.
