Video: Man Shot During Wild Shootout on Astoria Street

July 28, 2022 By Christian Murray

A gunfight erupted near the corner of 41st Street and Astoria Boulevard South during the early hours Monday morning leaving a man injured with a gunshot wound to the stomach, according to police.

The wild shoot out took place after a group of individuals gathered in front of 24-04 41st St. at around 1:40 a.m. and a verbal dispute broke out.

Police said one of the men in the dispute pointed his firearm at another individual and was shot in the stomach in response.

The gunshot victim passed his handgun to another man who then shot in the direction of the individual who inflicted the wound. The man is caught on video running down the sidewalk and firing his gun at the individual who did the initial shooting.

All of the individuals in the group are seen fleeing the scene, with one of the shooters seen jumping into a red Dodge Charger, police said.

Police released photos and videos of the two shooters. Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

The NYPD did not have any information as to the condition of the man shot. However, the NY Daily News reported that the shooting victim went to Mount Sinai Queens Hospital for treatment and was charged with criminal possession of a weapon.

Police are looking for two men involved in a wild shootout in Astoria during the early hours Monday morning. One suspect (left) is wanted for shooting a man in the stomach, while another man (right) is wanted for firing his weapon as part of the shootout (NYPD).

The lounge around the corner is responsible for way more then this but it doesn’t get reported…I wonder why?!? The fighting. The brawling. The “valet” that takes up the bus stop in front of the police! We all know the negativity these cash lounges bring in but If you say something you’re a racist.

Thieves, anti-socials, gang members, organized crime members, mentally-ills, drug dealers, Progressives, some other democrats who can afford to have security, Alvin Bragg and his entourage do feel safe living here… Gotta see the pattern though…

Bars shouldn’t be open at 3 in the morning! The sun comes up about 3 hours later. Don’t people work? I know some people work at night. Remind me again how black lives matter? Not!! Look at who’s committing 99% of the crimes in this city??

Welcome to the new normal. This is the world the Supreme Court and the gun lobby want us to live in, one where gun battles on the street are an every day occurrence because very knuckle dragging moron with “swag” has the god given right to carry a gun where ever he wants because “shall not be infringed” is the only part that matters, right?

Saddest part is, both these “responsible gun owners” will claim self defense and both will probably walk – if they’re ever even caught.

The odds of the gun being legally owned and the carrier licensed to carry concealed are slim to none.

This is why the bars/lounges located around the corner need to go. They are attracting this kind of violence that doesn’t belong here and yet rent is so expensive!
