Authorities say Hengjun Chao, of Tuckahoe, was taken into custody after shooting Dr. Dennis Charney outside a deli in suburban Chappaqua Monday morning. Charney is the dean of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City.

Another unidentified man was also wounded. Both are expected to survive.

The 49-year-old Chao's next court date is Sept. 7. It wasn't clear if he had a lawyer.

The shooting happened near Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's home in Chappaqua.
