Gunman grab

Cops from the 60th Precinct have arrested a 29-year-old man in connection with a bloody April 5 shooting.

Officials alleged that Michael Soto approached his victim on West 8th Street near Surf Avenue just after 4 am as the man chatted on his cellphone.

Soto reportedly asked his victim a question, but he didn’t hear him, police alleged.

By the time the victim pulled the phone away from his ear, Soto had opened fire, striking the man in the neck, hip and privates, police alleged.

The victim was rushed to the hospital, where he was listed in stable condition, although he will be maimed for the rest of his life, prosecutors said.

Soto was taken into custody and charged with attempted murder on April 23.
