Jan. 25, 2021 By Christina Santucci

Police released surveillance video Friday of two men involved in a shoot out in front of Hotel Nirvana in the Dutch Kills section of Long Island City on New Year’s Day.

The NYPD is calling on the public to help them identify the men as well as a get-away vehicle used by one of the suspects.

Police said that just after 1 a.m. on Jan. 1 a man shot at a group of people standing near 12-02 37th Ave. and hit a 19-year-old man in the stomach. The victim was brought to Weill Cornell Medical Center in stable condition.

One of the men who accompanied the victim fired several shots back at the initial shooter.

The suspect who fired the first shots and hit the 19-year-old fled in a gray four-door Infiniti sedan afterward, police said. Police released a photo of the vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip to the CrimeStoppers website.

Obviously these two are nothing short of punks. Hopefully the police will find these two and place them where they belong….in prison.
