Four people were wounded, two critically, after a dispute between two men led to a shooting in the Baisley Park section of Jamaica early Sunday morning, the NYPD said.

Police said a 27-year-old man was in a silver Audi with the unidentified suspect when the two individuals got into a dispute just before 6 a.m. Aug. 18. The suspect shot the man five times, including in the chest and back, and injured three others outside the car while firing before driving off, the NYPD said. The incident occurred at 152-38 118th Ave.

The three other victims included a 26-year-old man shot in the chest and hip, a 24-year-old woman shot in the left hip and a 19-year-old man who suffered a graze wound to his right hand. All the victims were taken to Jamaica Hospital, where the 27-year-old and 26-year-old men were in critical condition as of Monday morning, police said.

The 24-year-old woman was listed in stable condition, and the 19-year-old was treated and released Sunday morning, according to the NYPD.

Police said they were investigating the incident and were still trying to identify a suspect.

Reader feedback

probably legal from queens says:
The said thing is that the shooter probably bought his gun legally out of state in PA or VA. Having strict gun control laws is useless if other states give anyone and everyone a gun.

Joe Moretti from Jamaica says:
Here is a blast from the past that we have not heard from in a while, the “Drive-By Shooting”. Figures South Jamaica is bringing this back in vogue. Hell Jamaica Ave brought back last year the “Three Card Monty”, so why not this.

So in keeping with the status quo of Jamaica, poor quality of life and more shootings, the holy day of this past Sunday, finds four people shot by a yet unknown knucklehead suspect all before 6am. With some in the public here in NYC crying out for the police to ignore low level crimes, including the Rev. Al Sharpton and allowing the criminal element to do what the hell they want and less policing, how many of you want this to chestnut overlooked. And speaking of the Reverend, where are you AL, this is like the umpteenth shooting (plus several killings) in Jamaica this year, the majority black on black or does it only count for you when a white person is involved.
