Police say 3 folks have been shot in Queens Village, together with off-duty corrections officer

QUEENS VILLAGE, Queens (WABC) – Three people have been shot in Queens including an off-duty repairman.

Off-duty repair personnel observed a man open fire on a vehicle during what is believed to be a holiday weekend celebration at Jamaica Avenue and Site 214 in Queens Village just after 8 hours Sunday evening.

The officer then opened fire, hitting the gunman three times. A second gunman then opened fire on the corrections officer, firing one shot into his left leg.

Mayor Eric Adams said the shooters should never be on the street.

The original gunman was taken to Jamaica Medical Center and the off-duty correctional officer was taken to North Shore University Hospital Manhasset. Both injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

A third man is believed to have been shot in the gun exchange.

Police are examining the scene for evidence.
