A 23-year-old man was killed in a drive-by shooting across the street from the Queensbridge public housing development during the early hours Sunday morning.
Madgey Saleh, a resident of Queensbridge Houses, was gunned down when an unknown suspect fired several shots from a moving car and struck him in the abdomen in front of a deli at 10-03 40th Ave. at around 3:27 a.m., police said.
Madgey was found by police lying on the pavement unconscious and unresponsive. He was taken by EMS to a local hospital and was pronounced dead at 4 a.m.
The police have made no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.
First of all, most of the killings and crimes that are occurring daily are done to and by people who are out closer to sunrise. Second, I grew up not far from Queensbridge and that complex has always (more than 60+ years) been a breeding ground for crime. You would think after all of these generations of people living there, SOMEBODY would say enough. Guess not.
