Man Shot Twice On Center Boulevard in Long Island City: NYPD

Police outside 45-40 Center Blvd Tuesday following shooting (Citizen)

Jan 27, 2021 By Michael Dorgan

A 26-year-old man was shot twice in Long Island City Tuesday and the suspect remains at large.

The victim was shot by a suspect in a black jeep who fired off four gunshots following a heated argument outside 45-40 Center Boulevard at around 9:10 p.m., according to police. The man was shot in the left leg and stomach, police said.

The 26-year-old’s condition is not known, although cops said he is still alive.

The victim was shot while he was on the street arguing with an individual in the black jeep that was parked up. Shortly after the argument began, a suspect in the jeep fired off the shots and the victim slumped to the ground.

The jeep then sped off southbound on Center Boulevard, police said.

It is unclear what sparked the argument, although police said the victim had got out of a white sedan and approached the driver just prior to the shooting.

Shortly after the shooting, a passenger in the white sedan pulled the wounded man into the car and they drove off.

The victim, who is from the Ravenswood Houses NYCHA Complex in Astoria, was then driven to Cornell Hospital with his gunshot wounds.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
