The NYPD is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of four men wanted for a mass shooting in Corona Saturday night.

The reward comes four days after two men opened fire on 37th Avenue (between 97th and 98th streets) that left 10 people injured in what police believe was a gang shooting. Seven of the people injured were innocent bystanders, with three being members of the Trinitarios gang—the intended targets.

The two shooters were then picked up by two men on mopeds, which were used as getaway vehicles.

The gunmen fired approximately 40 shots during the shooting, NYPD Chief of Detectives James Essig said Sunday. The victims ranged in age from 19 to 72, police said.

The reward comes on top of a $20,000 reward offered by Curtis Sliwa, the Guardian Angels founder and Republican mayoral candidate.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at nypdcrimestoppers.com, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.

3 men sought for armed robbery in East Elmhurst home invasion near LaGuardia Airport: NYPD

The NYPD is looking for three men who allegedly robbed an East Elmhurst man of tens of thousands of dollars during a home invasion early Monday morning.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at a townhouse located at 108-09 Ditmars Blvd. near 29th Avenue just south of LaGuardia Airport.
The victim had pulled up in front of his home just before 2 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. One of them pulled out a firearm and forced him inside the townhouse where they stole around $30,000 in cash and a safe that contained an unspecified amount of jewelry, before exiting and driving off in a silver four-door SUV, police said.
