A 25-year-old man was killed after being shot in the stomach following a dispute over a parking space in Long Island City Thursday.
Police said the victim was gunned down at around 6:50 p.m. in the middle of the street on Borden Avenue near 2nd Street.
The police said that the shooter fled the scene with a passenger in a gray BMW.
The victim was taken to an area hospital and died in surgery.
Sources say that the shooter has a rap sheet and is known to the police.
The police are confident that they will catch the perpetrator, sources say.
The name of the victim has not yet been released.
Yes they need to Stop building high rises and build a highrise garage. With AFFORDABLE parking. but that’s not realistic, just like affordable rents it’s a Dream or should I say nightmare in LIC.
So guns had nothing to do with the death?
THERES A HOLD UP IN THE BRONX,BROOKLYN BROKE OUT IN FIGHTS, THERE A TRAFFIC JAM IN HARLEM THATS BACKED ALL THE WAY TO JACKSON HEIGHTS,
WHERE ARE YOU¿
Two weeks ago a person got into a fist fight with an traffic officer because he got a ticket. There is additional frustration over parking spaces due to outside dining and bike stations. The city needs to built more garage spaces and parking lots. I got into a fight with a neighbor who put a garbage can on a parking space because her husband went to Costco. I wouldn’t of cared but she used my garbage can with my address on it. People feel like they can do whatever they want. She was more angry about me trying to record our interaction. I wanted proof incase it escalated.
They can’t use your stuff if you don’t give them the opportunity.
Wait until you see how many parking spots the new school on 48th Street will commander.
Killed over a parking spot !
Maybe if they take away those bike stations we have more spots. Its that simple .
I should be the mayor 😎
Yes and take away the parks so you will have more space to park your car Cynthia .
so…did he get the parking spot or not?
Police know who did it
The guys knew each other
Might be gong related
Where is the private security? Clean up the streets. If they’d rode a bike, they would not have been looking for parking.
But gun control or something
Safest big city in the world says debozo
What kind of weapon was used? How many shots fired? Black or white? Will the person responsible for murder over a parking spot be taken off the street?
The real estate brokers say that LIC has killer views!
They can now advertise Parking Spaces to Die For!
LIC: Your gateway to the Promised Land.
Your jokes land like a blow to the gut.
It wasn’t a bmw. It was a black Mercedes. We saw it whiz by Piatto the restaurant. Please inform the police
Meg- Instead of wasting time posting to a local blog, why don’t you notify police of what you witnessed. You’re probably the first to say “nothing ever gets done” , well it’s because of behavior like this.
Hey Meg, why don’t you inform the police, also police says “suspect known to them” if known why don’t they go grab him?
NY needs to allow concealed carry license already, criminals get their guns anyway, law abiding citizens need to get their guns too, criminal lowlife thugs like this one will think twice before trying to shoot someone.
When you have parking dispute, you can always yield, and then go back to say hello to their car. How do we know this guy didn’t bully the other one out of his parking space with a gun?
thanks de blasio, cant wait until nov 2021. adios!!
Wait till you get a load of who will be replacing Deblasio. Jumaane Williams, Corey Johnson or DeBlasio’s wife. Parking spaces will be the least of your worries. Btw All three will be removing parking spaces asap. They all luv bicycles Gotta be anenvironmentalist you know
