Two men were shot outside a nightclub in Astoria early Sunday morning and the suspect remains at large.

The victims, aged 36 and 33, were in front of Coco La Reve nightclub, located at 42-18 31 Ave., at around 4 a.m. when an unidentified suspect approached them and fired off multiple shots, according to police.

The 36-year-old victim was struck in the buttocks while the 33-year-old victim was hit in the arm and the stomach, police said.

The alleged shooter then fled the scene on foot, the NYPD said.

Both victims were transported by EMS to Elmhurst General Hospital in stable condition, police said.

It is unclear what sparked the shooting or if the men were arguing with the suspect prior to the incident. Police did not say if the suspect or the victims had been inside the nightclub before the shooting took place.

Police released images of the man wanted for questioning late Sunday. The suspect, who has a dark complexion, can be seen wearing a green hoody and green baseball cap.

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 Crime Stoppers website at https://crimestoppers.nypdonline.org/, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.

All calls are strictly confidential.

1. Hochul is a moderate
2. Bail still exists, there’s just no cash bail for low level offenses
3. There’s no evidence the shooter was let go by a DA, and wouldn’t have been if he’d previously committed a violent crime.
4. Shootings are down. There’s a focus on getting guns off the street. Zeldin would have encouraged guns.

A Long Island City man on Friday, Jan. 28, was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the 2020 fatal shooting of a public school social studies teacher who was out walking his dog when he was caught in the crossfire during a confrontation between gang rivals in broad daylight, just blocks from his home, according to Queens District Attorney’s office.

Ike Ford, 19, of 12th Street, in Long Island City, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the first degree before Queens Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Holder. The teacher, George Rosa, 53, was shot in his abdomen by a stray bullet fired by Ford, who was just 17 years old at the time of the shooting but was sentenced as an adult given the severity of the crime, according to Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz.
