Police are looking for a suspect who fired shots inside a playground near the border of Long Island City and Astoria midday on Feb. 19.
The police received a report that an individual fired a gun three times around 12:40 p.m. inside Dutch Kills Playground, near the corner of 36th Avenue and Crescent Street.
The incident occurred two days after a newborn boy was found dead in a trash can near the same street corner.
The police, who released video of the suspect, did provide a detailed description of the suspect.
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
These morons need to stop this. It’s been happening too frequently now. I hope someone recognize this low life idiot and gets him. They need to think about the innocent bystanders and kids that are out playing. It’s all good until one of their kids or family members get shot.
Thank goodness no one was hurt. Seems like it took place days before the other shooting in Astoria. Thanks for making us aware of what is happening. So sad.
Not all crimes make the news. But it is good when there is surveillance video to go public to help identify the suspect(s). When my neighbor was robbed in Astoria no one from the media showed up.
