A 50-year-old man was fatally shot in Long Island City last night while sitting in his Mercedes in front of a luxury apartment complex, police said.

Police said that Joseph Bryan, of Elmhurst, was shot multiple times in the arm and torso by a gunman who approached his vehicle in front of the Jackson Park apartment complex, located at 28-10 Jackson Ave., at around 11:15 p.m.

Bryan was transported by EMS to Mount Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The perpetrator fled the scene on foot.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing. Police are unsure at this time whether the incident was gang related.

Most people know the reasons for the high crimes such as poor leadership, tying the hands of law enforcement, decriminalizing drugs, releasing so many from the prisons and so much more. However, De Blasio and other’s like him continue to blame Covid while thousands of people flee to other states from what once was a great city under Bloomberg and Guiliani. I think NYC will take decades to come back if ever. I feel sorry for the vulnerable population such as the old people who can’t leave and are victimized.

FBI Statistics state the highest crime states are all Republican. Google it.

A father was shot in his car in Texas in a case of road rage, is that the Republicans fault?

The perpetrators were certainly once again cyclists. Those who cycle in the wrong direction also eat small children and shoot well-behaved motorists!

Hope the victim recovers quickly and the suspect is caught. Scary times. Looking forward to more free concerts.

Gun crime:

Brought to you by the misinterpretation of the 2nd Amendment by the right wing.

There should be a follow up in this. Its was some guy in the movie biz who knows Ice T, by the pics shown elsewhere it may have been near the luxury apt bldg but it was down at the end of a dark street in front pf CRS International. Why is a Mercedes park in this area late at night. Please look into it.

FBI Statistics: Louisiana, Tenn, Alabama, Oklahoma and Mississippi highest in crime.

Don’t forget the Republican contribution of an endless supply of guns.

That’s not what Democrats do but I doubt you’re interested in a reasonable discussion. If you are really sick of Democratic Party Leadership, you should relocate. This part of the country is not for you. Move to a big city controlled by the Republican Party who bends over backward trying to keep the jails and prisons full. You would probably be happier.

3 worst presidents ever were Republican. Trump (total liar and incompetent), Bush (responsible for 2 wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for no reason), Nixon (resigned in disgrace). Enough said.

Enough already

You are 100% correct. It’s time we had public leadership that has the interest of the people that don’t commit crime not glorifying those that do. I’m voting republican going forward.

If its gang related than it’s probably from those gangs in the queensbridge/ravenwood nycha buildings. there not far from there. There was a teacher shot and killed over there just a few months ago I think. It’s a shame

AG James announces dismantling of Queens-based ghost gun trafficking operation

New York Attorney General Letitia James announced Wednesday the takedown of a prolific Queens-based gun trafficking crew accused of selling firearms and ammo at an East Elmhurst playground, the Queens Center Mall and other locations around the borough.

James secured a 625-count indictment charging five men for participating in the gun smuggling ring, which involved selling dozens of ghost guns, assault weapons, high-capacity magazines and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.
