At a party in Queens, where between 75 and 100 people were gathering, detectives with the New York City Police shot and wounded four guys they claim opened fire.
11.35 p.m. or so According to NYPD Chief of Patrol Jeff Maddrey, plainclothes officers from the violent crime squad were keeping an eye on the party, which was being hosted in a residential area, from an unmarked car on Friday.
According to Maddrey, police “thought there would be violence involving some of the neighbourhood street crews.”
The detectives observed several men enter the home, take out at least three weapons, and begin shooting at the gathering.
Detectives and the men’s group engaged with gunfire, according to Maddrey. According to authorities, four people were shot and then taken to the hospital, where they were in stable condition as of Saturday morning.
At least three firearms, according to the police, were found. No shots were fired at the police officers.
When this happened, there were many individuals present, Maddrey remarked. They essentially opened fire into the throng.
These specifics will show how gun violence continues to plague our communities, and once more, I beg community members to cooperate with the police so that we can put an end to this carnage, according to Maddrey.
The injured men’s names and potential charges have not yet been released by the police.
According to police, no other people were hurt in the shooting.
