AJ Ross has the latest details.

Cory Gloe, the Long Island man who got probation and just six months in jail for a drag racing crash that killed five teenagers will return to court next month to face new weapons and endangerment charges.

Due to a change in counsel, the case was adjourned Monday and continued to November 1st. Gloe waived his appearance in court and bail was continued.

Gloe was arrested last week after he allegedly fired a 12-gauge shotgun in the air in Farmingdale. No one was injured.

His lawyer says it is not clear who fired the shotgun.

Gloe pled guilty in March to a 17-count indictment in the deadly crash that included five manslaughter charges in exchange for the shorter sentence.
He was one of two drivers engaging in a drag race in Farmingdale in May 2014, during which the driver and four passengers in the other car died when that vehicle crashed into an oncoming SUV.

The SUV driver and his passenger were seriously injured. Prosecutors said Gloe goaded the other driver into racing, and his plea agreement came despite revelations from prosecutors that he had posted an epithet to police and that he was arrested again while awaiting sentencing.

The latest incident also happened in Farmingdale, when officers responded to a call for shots fired on Lyons Avenue at approximately 9:30 p.m. Wednesday. Arriving officers were were informed by the residents that they observed their rear neighbor, Corey Gloe, now 20, firing a 12-gauge shotgun in his yard.

They also informed the officers that earlier in the evening, at approximately 5 p.m., a woman in her yard with her 3-year-old daughter had seen Gloe discharge the shotgun into the air, but did not notify police at that time.
