Watch: Gunfight Takes Place on Jamaica Street Tuesday

April 20, 2022 By Christian Murray

Police have released video footage of two men engaged in a gunfight that took place in Jamaica Tuesday.

The gunslingers were firing shots at one another in the middle of the street by 194-05 Linden Blvd. at around 12:30 p.m. The pair were both using cars to shield themselves from the bullets.

Cops responded to the scene after multiple people called 911 about shots fired.

The two men participating in the shootout got into their respective vehicles to flee the scene.

One man got into a silver Honda Accord to get away, only to come back to the scene to retrieve his belongings that he had dropped during the gunfight.

The second man fled in a black Acura 4-door sedan that was being driven by another unidentified individual.

There were no injuries reported, although a vehicle was damaged by stray bullets.

Anyone with information in regard to the shootout is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
