A fight that broke out in front of a Long Island City shelter early Monday escalated and led to a shoot out on the street, according to police.
A group of men got into a physical altercation outside the Fairfield Inn & Suites hotel/shelter, located at 27-29 40th Road, at around 6:05 a.m. before one of them left and came back with a gun and fired shots.
The shooter, who didn’t injure anyone, then fled on foot toward Northern Boulevard and 39th Avenue, where individuals inside a white Mercedes Benz caught up with him and began shooting at him. The original shooter then fired back.
There were no injuries stemming from the gun fight.
The police, however, are seeking help in identifying the shooter as well as the occupants of the white Mercedes Benz.
The shooter is described as being approximately 25 to 30 years of age, with black hair. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, black pants and black and green sneakers.
Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at https://crimestoppers.nypdonline.org/ or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
Black pants, black sneakers, black hair. What about skin color? That seems to be the most important factor of recognizing a criminal
I remember just a few years back when our part of queens was great.I wonder what changed
No nail lW instituted by Democratic Socialists in Power
These ate tadical defund the police and in Dem. Socialist City Council member Tiffany Caban’ s case to DISBAND THE NYPD. Arobbery recently took place across the street from her.office in Admstoria. Outside the Ubdet Pressure Espresso Bar. Thebrobbers camebon bikes and took chains and bracelets from Patrons whowere dibing outside I believe. When a reporter asked a worker frpm the Espresso Bar if he agrees with Ms. Caban’ s Disband the NYPD theme? His reply was “She Is a CLOWN.!”
The fairfield is a homeless shelter for those recently released from rikers. Not sure why LIC post is reporting it as a hotel. Julie won does not acknowledge the area is over burdened with NUMEROUS homeless shelters and it is leading to crime and people not feeling safe for a good reason. The area is becoming dangerous. Numerous non-profits CORPORATIONS are making a killing, one corp runs the shelter, another supplies “security”, another provides meals and so on. Julie won is working diligently to make sure they get paid without delay.
Crime up 40% in LIC
Hamburger consumption down 26% since the closure of Pennybridge. Thing is if you don’t source your numbers why would anyone believe them.
It was about a month ago. It was NYPD stats. I believe either LIC Post or NY Post.
Go on dismissing crime and I hope you are not affected by it.
