A man was slashed in the face and shot at after a verbal dispute erupted in a playground behind I.S. 204 in the Dutch Kills section of Long Island City on Friday.

The 23-year-old victim, according to police, was approached by six unknown individuals while watching a baseball game at the playground area behind I.S. 204, located at 36-41 28 Street, on May 17 at around 5:25 p.m.

A second individual then pulled out a firearm and fired, police say.

EMS responded to the scene and transported the victim to Mount Sinai Hospital where he was in stable condition.

The two suspects were later caught on video surveillance cameras on the corner of 37 Avenue and 30 Street.

The first individual is described by police as male, Hispanic, medium build, with a goatee and short, dark hair. He was last seen wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, brown shoes and carrying a black backpack.

The second individual is described as male, Hispanic, with a thin build and short black hair. He was last seen wearing dark blue jeans, a gray shirt, a gray hooded sweat jacket and carrying a black back pack.

Same demographic group, different part of Latin America. We are in deep, deep trouble. You have an entire group of young unaccompanied juveniles from Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala being released in the homeland, all heading north. You have young mother’s and father’s carrying toddlers and young children claiming persecution entering the USA — coming to NYC as NYC provides universal PRE-K, healthcare, housing and food, they already know this as it’s promoted by smugglers in Central America as an incentive to make the journey north. This is a crisis. The offspring of these excellent immigrants are bearing fruit.

Perhaps legalizing them would help keep “tabs” andbring them to speed to our American Society. Let’s END the cycle. Let’s CARE that their offspring become BETTER THAN the excellent migrant immigrant you mention. A citizen, one that offers solutions instead is ignorant criticism 🙂 it’s a small world after all <3

If you were born here it's shocking you have no understanding of basic privacy rights guaranteed by the Constitution

We typically learn it in grade school. I’m shocked you’ve never heard of the fourth dimension.

Don't ask me how I know

Just a wild guess, but I’ll bet they’re in the country illegally.
Don’t ask me how I know, I just do.

Who’s keeping track of who these EMPLOYERS hire? There are a ton of factories/shops all around that area. Guess you get what you pay for.

Trump employed a crew of 200 undocumented Polish workers who worked in 12-hour shifts to demolish the site for Trump Tower

Trump did.

For more information, read the above article. That’s why he paid a million dollars.

Any more questions?

Guys look pretty happy having slashed and shot at people-filthy sociopaths. Probably gang-related garbage.
