The NYPD is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of four men wanted for a mass shooting in Corona Saturday night.

The reward comes four days after two men opened fire on 37th Avenue (between 97th and 98th streets) that left 10 people injured in what police believe was a gang shooting. Seven of the people injured were innocent bystanders, with three being members of the Trinitarios gang—the intended targets.

The two shooters were then picked up by two men on mopeds, which were used as getaway vehicles.

The gunmen fired approximately 40 shots during the shooting, NYPD Chief of Detectives James Essig said Sunday. The victims ranged in age from 19 to 72, police said.

The reward comes on top of a $20,000 reward offered by Curtis Sliwa, the Guardian Angels founder and Republican mayoral candidate.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at nypdcrimestoppers.com, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.

A Long Island woman was sentenced to more than 20 years in prison for speeding through an NYPD roadblock while drunk and killing a highway patrolman in a 2021 hit-and-run collision on the Long Island Expressway in Fresh Meadows.

Beauvais had a blood alcohol level of twice the legal limit two hours after plowing into Detective Anastasios Tsakos while he was diverting traffic around another fatal collision, and then speeding away from the scene of the collision.

Firefighter injured battling 2-alarm house fire in Forest Hills early Wednesday morning: FDNY

The FDNY battled a fast-moving two-alarm house fire in Forest Hills early Wednesday morning that injured one firefighter. The blaze broke out in a two-story private home at 114 Walnut St., a block north of Forest Park at 2:34 a.m. Arriving units found heavy fire conditions throughout the basement, first and second floors. Firefighters were hampered by an SUV parked illegally in front of a fire hydrant at the location.

The FDNY transmitted a second alarm, bringing 25 units and 106 firefighters and EMS personnel to the scene. Nearby residents said the building had been undergoing construction in recent weeks and firefighters were evacuated from the rooftop due to sagging conditions towards the rear of the home. Firefighters could be seen through a second-story window pulling down ceilings after flames breached the cockloft, the area between the roof and ceiling.
