A man was shot in Astoria early Tuesday — just feet from the scene where a woman was fatally gunned down last year.

This morning’s victim was shot by an unidentified suspect near the intersection of Astoria Boulevard North and Steinway Street at around 1:30 a.m., according to police. The incident took place across from Solletto, a nightclub located at 23-66 Steinway St.

The 27-year-old victim was hit in the leg, arm and buttocks after the gunman fired off six shots, police said.

He was transported to Elmhurst Hospital and is expected to survive, police said.

The suspect fled the scene in a white-colored Dodge Durango southbound on Steinway Street. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie, black hat and blue jeans, police said.

Video posted to Citizen shows police cordoning off part of the intersection after the shooting. No arrests have been made.

It is unclear what sparked the incident or whether the men were inside the nightclub before the shooting took place.

In December, Mye Johnson, an NYPD school safety officer, was fatally shot outside Solletto while her twin sister and a friend were also shot and injured.

Steinway street turned into a sewer. At 8pm at night its dead. Deserted. All you smell is weed. It’s terrible

Resubmitting because someone edited my post – that’s not Twitter Allowed!
This location is only 1500 feet from the featherbedding 114 Precinct. Takes 2 minuets to drive and 8 minuets to walk. So much for DI Goreman, he can go too. When will Astoria have a NYPD rank and file and Captain willing to serve the community?

Because it is now full of people from Brooklyn and Manhattan in which median rent is much higher than Astoria and cant afford LIC. They view it as a bargain and also pay more to live with a certain demographic with nearby NYCHA so they can claim they understand the struggle by voting for AOC Caban and Zohran.

Surreal? Highest crime in US are in Republican strongholds, urban and rural. The Republican poster child Texas is ranked the 11th most dangerous state according to FBI statistics and DOJ.
