FISHKILL - A Fishkill man has been accused of shooting at a village pizzeria on Sunday afternoon.

Six people were inside Antonella's when gunfire hit the storefront in Fishkill Plaza on Route 9 shortly before 2 p.m., but none of them were injured, state police said.

Gary Bonventre Jr., 42, was arrested shortly before 6 p.m. and accused of firing at the business. Police have not commented on what the motive may have been.

Antonella's is open for business Monday. In a Facebook post said the store called the shooting "a random incident" in which "a single bullet struck our front window." On Monday a large panel of wood covered the window.

"Thankfully, no one was injured in our restaurant," the post read. "We are grateful to local and state police for their swift response, and we will continue to assist them with their investigation."

State police responded to the shooting with town of Fishkill police and village of Fishkill police. Bonventre fled the scene, they said, before he was taken into custody. Police said they also found a .22-short caliber revolver.

Bonventre was charged with attempted first-degree assault, second-degree criminal use of a firearm and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, as well as six counts of first-degree reckless endangerment, all felonies.

Bonventre was arraigned in Fishkill Village Court and taken to the Dutchess County Jail on $100,000 bail, $100,000 secure bond or $1 million partially secure bond. He is due back in court on Oct. 17.
