Police are searching for a number of suspects following a drive-by shootout in Astoria early Sunday morning.

The driver of a white SUV pulled up alongside two men in the vicinity of 36th Street and 28th Avenue at around 3:50 a.m. and an occupant inside the car fired off several shots at them, police said.

As the driver of the SUV sped off, the two men on foot returned fire, according to police. The pair shot at the vehicle as it drove off in a westbound direction along 28th Avenue.

The two men on foot fled the scene in an unknown direction, police said. There were no reported injuries.

Nobody cares about this and nothing will be done. But don’t you DARE go have a beer standing up at a bar! The government is 100% focused on stopping that.

There’s a name this: anarcho-tyranny. Criminals can run wild with no punishment. Law abiding citizens are forced to comply with an endlessly growing list of arbitrary and mostly useless rules.
