Police: Woman killed, another critically injured in Queens shooting

A 48-year-old woman, the downstairs neighbor, went upstairs to check on the commotion. 

Police say the suspect opened fire, shooting the 51-year-old in the head, and the 48-year-old was struck twice. 

Both women were rushed to the Elmhurst Hospital, but one did not survive. The other victim is in critical condition.     

“All of the police cars were blocking everything off. Business actually slowed up for us, because they weren’t allowing anyone in the store. We’re just doing deliveries right now,” said Rico Stephen of Bakers Dozen Bagels.

“It’s not the norm here. It’s usually a very good, quiet neighborhood,” said Anne Marie Kenyon. “It’s awful. It’s happening everywhere. It’s scary.” 

Police are searching for the suspect. 

Anyone with any information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). You can also submit a tip via their website or via DM on Twitter, @NYPDTips. All calls are kept confidential.
