A man was shot in Astoria early Tuesday — just feet from the scene where a woman was fatally gunned down last year.

This morning’s victim was shot by an unidentified suspect near the intersection of Astoria Boulevard North and Steinway Street at around 1:30 a.m., according to police. The incident took place across from Solletto, a nightclub located at 23-66 Steinway St.

The 27-year-old victim was hit in the leg, arm and buttocks after the gunman fired off six shots, police said.

He was transported to Elmhurst Hospital and is expected to survive, police said.

The suspect fled the scene in a white-colored Dodge Durango southbound on Steinway Street. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie, black hat and blue jeans, police said.

Video posted to Citizen shows police cordoning off part of the intersection after the shooting. No arrests have been made.

It is unclear what sparked the incident or whether the men were inside the nightclub before the shooting took place.

In December, Mye Johnson, an NYPD school safety officer, was fatally shot outside Solletto while her twin sister and a friend were also shot and injured.

Another Responsible Gun Owner exercising his god given Second Amendment right to self defense! I for one an thankful that that Good Guy With A Gun was there to protect us from what could only have been a Bad Guy, because guns never kill the wrong people or fall into the wrong hands which is why we should remove all restrictions on gun purchasing and let anyone carry a gun anywhere at any time! God bless guns and god bless the US of A!


Diversity in action all around Steinway clubs.. What are you complaining about? Is not diversity our strength?

Just 1584 feet from precinct 114. DI Gorman, we are watching you fail just as poorly as DI Jenkins and DI Nunez. Want to leave now and escape further embarrassment?
Can we please have a captain that has control over his rank and file? May we please have a rank and file that is willing to do the job needed? All i see is a precinct locked down to keep the citizens out and the overtime pouring in without any laws enforcement. Even the simple things like vehicles without registration and expired paper tags.
Woodside deserves better than the 114 and Tiffany Cabán


How come you don’t blame the judges who let shooters roam free even after getting caught 30 times? What about the leftist lawmakers who legislates the dumbest laws ever in the US history? Don’t blame the cops anymore. Criminals out on the street the same day or the next even if police catches them on action. Enjoy the clown world created by democrats, leftists, and the clowns themselves.

I pay 3k a month rent to live from an auto body shop and illegal strip club. There has been assault in the club and guns fired. When the cops showed up they laughed said nothing we can do. And went to get some ladies from the club. Which is my I am leaving ghetto storia.
