July 28, 2022 By Christian Murray

A gunfight erupted near the corner of 41st Street and Astoria Boulevard South during the early hours Monday morning leaving a man injured with a gunshot wound to the stomach, according to police.

The wild shoot out took place after a group of individuals gathered in front of 24-04 41st St. at around 1:40 a.m. and a verbal dispute broke out.

Police said one of the men in the dispute pointed his firearm at another individual and was shot in the stomach in response.

The gunshot victim passed his handgun to another man who then shot in the direction of the individual who inflicted the wound. The man is caught on video running down the sidewalk and firing his gun at the individual who did the initial shooting.

All of the individuals in the group are seen fleeing the scene, with one of the shooters seen jumping into a red Dodge Charger, police said.

Police released photos and videos of the two shooters. Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

The NYPD did not have any information as to the condition of the man shot. However, the NY Daily News reported that the shooting victim went to Mount Sinai Queens Hospital for treatment and was charged with criminal possession of a weapon.

Police are looking for two men involved in a wild shootout in Astoria during the early hours Monday morning. One suspect (left) is wanted for shooting a man in the stomach, while another man (right) is wanted for firing his weapon as part of the shootout (NYPD).
