Police are searching for a number of suspects following a drive-by shootout in Astoria early Sunday morning.

The driver of a white SUV pulled up alongside two men in the vicinity of 36th Street and 28th Avenue at around 3:50 a.m. and an occupant inside the car fired off several shots at them, police said.

As the driver of the SUV sped off, the two men on foot returned fire, according to police. The pair shot at the vehicle as it drove off in a westbound direction along 28th Avenue.

The two men on foot fled the scene in an unknown direction, police said. There were no reported injuries.

Barbara bouwie. Sounds like ur happy? Probably happy if someone dies and crime sky rockets just so rent can lower in Astoria? Way to think that way.. people like yourself are the reason why Astoria is turning into a place like Portland…

It looks like Astoria is slowly turning into the south Bronx. This is ridiculous. The police need to get on this, it happened just a block away from the 114th precinct. We’re going to start begging Giuliani to come back again the way DeBlasio is turning this city into a s**t hole.

Shoutout to DeBlasio, Costa, AOC, and the rest of the soft on crime who have enabled this to hppen. This is the direct result of the soft on crime policies such as eliminating Stop and Frisk, removal of plainclothes units, and the demonization of police on a daily basis. Astoria is fast becoming a haven for thugs and lowlives. Where is the outrage? Or is the mayor too busy making sure the rights of the homeless encampments by city hall are protected? Drive by shootings on 28th Avenue? Are you serious?
