A 18-year-old man was shot and critically wounded in a quiet Queens neighborhood on Saturday night, police say.
Cops from the 105th Precinct found the teenager, not yet identified, shot twice in the chest at 8:44 p.m. on May 16 in front of 244-32 137th Ave. in the Rosedale section of Queens.
Paramedics rushed him to Jamaica Hospital, where he’s listed in critical condition.
Police sources said they have no description of the shooter at this time. A motive for the shooting, in this relatively quiet section of Queens on the Nassau County border, also remains unclear, investigators say.
“The whole neighborhood from here back is real quiet,” said one resident. “Very unusual for this spot. I heard pop, pop, pop.” said a 40-year-old resident of the community.
Another resident added, “I’m shocked, I’m new to the neighborhood. Would never expect this here.”
