A 23-year-old man was killed in a drive-by shooting across the street from the Queensbridge public housing development during the early hours Sunday morning.

Madgey Saleh, a resident of Queensbridge Houses, was gunned down when an unknown suspect fired several shots from a moving car and struck him in the abdomen in front of a deli at 10-03 40th Ave. at around 3:27 a.m., police said.

Madgey was found by police lying on the pavement unconscious and unresponsive. He was taken by EMS to a local hospital and was pronounced dead at 4 a.m.

The police have made no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.

My prayers for everyone involved. This is the prime example of what a lack of education and resources can do to a community. The mindset needs to be change and hope restored. I believe that is the key to reform.

His life didnt matter ? All these protest & demonstrations for what ??
Stop the violence .


While this has nothing to do with sunnyside, it’s the same precinct I guess?
Also, nothing good happens at 3-4AM
Any news how the police found him, where they called when shooting happened, or did someone call them after spotting the body?

I wish someone check the employment status of all these housing development residents. If they don’t work, they might as well build the housing developments in remote locations.

oh well, its back to bullets

man, just two years ago a bunch of schools over there were going to get huge investment to teach tech to young kids as Amazon was getting ready to move in in. No Amazon, no LIC tech boom means no hope so its back to the 1980s for these kids, I blame this on the liberal politicians who drove Amazon away.

Didnt this black life matter ?? Blacks are shooting each other so now what ???? Poor 1yr old shot dead in stroller few weeks ago in Bklyn by blacks.
Stop the killing

All lives matter

Hurry up and defund the police so this sort of thing doesn’t happen again!


The NYPD already has a budget of 11 billion dollars. That’s a lot of money. If we stopped asking cops to deal with social issues and let them focus on crime, we could allocate monies towards areas where many social problems could be solved. It’s not rocket science.

Defund this!

“Social issues” such as domestic disturbances have a nasty habit of turning violent, if not deadly. When the first few social workers get greased, you’ll be whistling a different tune.

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
