Four men were shot at the Ravenswood Housing development in Astoria Monday afternoon, police said.
The victims—ages 21, 17, 18 and 19—were sitting in the courtyard in the vicinity of 21st Avenue and 35th Street when a man approached the group at around 4:45 p.m. and started firing.
The four victims were taken to Elmhurst Hospital and are all expected to survive, police said. The 21-year-old was shot in the head, the 17-year-old in the back, 19-year-old in the hand and the 18-year-old in the knee.
The unknown suspect—who was wearing a black T-Shirt and black face mask– left the scene in a dark SUV, police said.
