A 26-year-old man was shot three times in front of a purported “party” building near the Astoria Houses NYCHA complex Saturday.

The victim, identified as Emmanuel Scott, was shot while standing outside 8-23 Astoria Blvd. at around 11:25 p.m., according to police. He was struck in the right ankle, right knee and buttocks.

Scott, according to cops, heard gunshots and then felt pain. He was transferred to Elmhurst Hospital in stable condition and is expected to survive.

The NYPD recovered five shell casings at the scene.

The building is known for being a hotspot for private parties, according to the New York Post, despite the large exterior sign indicating that it is the home of the House of Prayer and Deliverance church.
