An off-duty corrections officer leaped into action to stop a man who was shooting a gun into a crowded area early Sunday in Astoria.
The suspect was shooting toward a crowd and into the air near the corner of 28th Avenue and Steinway Street at around 2:15 a.m., police said.
An off-duty corrections officer, who happened to be nearby, pulled out his own gun and shot at the suspect. The gunman took off in an unknown direction.
No one was injured in the incident. No arrests have been made, but the investigation is ongoing.
