An Amtrak worker who shot a fellow employee in the leg and then fled in an SUV this morning is dead, police say.
A dispute erupted between the two men at around 8 a.m. on 39th Street and Skillman Avenue, police say, when one of the men pulled out a gun and shot the victim once in his left leg.
The suspect fled the scene in an SUV and went south on 39th Street. The suspect then drove to the Rite Aid parking lot at 50-15 Roosevelt Ave.
The suspect shot himself dead in his car at 51st Street and Roosevelt Avenue, police said.
Information on the deceased man has yet to be released.
The victim, 53, was conscious upon the arrival of EMS and is likely to recover.
A DeBozo supporter no doubt.
Guess people working or living in Queens haven’t had access to Thrive, Mrs. De Bozo’s waste of taxpayers money. It is a shame that those who really need mental health services don’t have access. These situations seem to be happening more often. Where have all those millions gone?
Being mentally ill is really shooting yourself in the foot. Most who are mentally ill and violent have absolutely no idea /they/ are the problem in the equation. To them, it’s everyone else in the world.
How many police officers have been shot or worse because of some wandering wacko brandishing whatever and the family members are all “there was no need to shoot my auntie! She was mentally ill!”.
If they were mentally ill why are they allowed out of anyone’s sight? Why are they not on medication and having their medication monitored? So many people would be alive, including the mentally ill if everyone involved would take these things seriously.
ps 11 WAS ON LOCKDOWN THAT DAY
Yes, we need more police around our community!!!
Being on lockdown has nothing to do with police presence in the school.
did not see anything on news about incident, I guess not important enough for local news,or they don’t want us to know that crime is going up.
Where is JVB?
it was on all of the news stations and that is the truth.
Seriously, everything written in this news media center has people asking about junior vice bastard!!! Hello! He obviously doesn’t give a shit!
Oh tell me about it!! I was nearly not able to leave the 7 I was on because of about 10 have ish age boys play fighting ON the already crowded car!!! Like lookout for elbows slamming into your eyes play fight! And we all know it’s all fun and games until someone needs an ambulance. Seriously, the nonsense these kids decide to fight about is so pathetic and petty.
Yes crime is down anyone read the Con Stat” numbers lately?? what was the fight over? the last piece of mystery sea creature from the sea horse house of fried sea creatures last slice pineapple cake from Martha’s?? I must be seeing distorted lies bout the homicides in the last two weeks.
The supervisor was not a nice guy
No excuse. I can tell you story after story after story about this city’s school system. Lifetime sinister movie worthy stories.
The victim was shot in the train yards in LIC. The perp committed suicide in the Rite Aid parking lot in Woodside. None of this crime occurred in Sunnyside.
Joe if you live in Berkleys ,Woodside why read Sunnyside Post?
Cause there’s no Woodside Post???
@Sally I have friends and relatives who live in Sunnyside. Is thatl ok with you?
Sure. Than I guess it’s ok for Sunnyside Post to write about crimes in LIC
because Woodside and Sunnyside post are combined – that is why
You do realize the SUNNYSIDE community center is literally right up the block from where the shooting happened right? Moron, abd the rite aid lot is in between sunnyside and woodside so whats your bitching about?
Ehhh… depending on what map you look at 51 St is the first street in Woodside. Or 52nd first the street is Woodside.
39th and skillman is the exact North Western corner if the neighborhood.
Whether it’s technically in Sunnyside or not, it is close enough. All the schools in Sunnyside are in lockdown mode. This is a relevant news for Sunnyside Post. Thanks for reporting.
Oh thank god this didn’t happen in Sunnyside. Thank god it was at the Rite Aid two blocks down. Pheww
This was an intra-Amtrak dispute which tragically turned deadly. Good police work in tracking down the shooter.
Yesterday there was an after-school scuffle at the 7 train entrance at 47th Street and Queens Blvd. which nearly turned deadly. A large group of kids were taunting one boy and the fight spilled into westbound QB traffic, right near Jimmy’s office. A passerby said these fights happens daily. 108th cops need to monitor this before it turns deadly.
nobody has heard anything from Mr. JVB about this — where is he
Who cares he’s done.
JVB is out there making sure his bike lanes are entact and clean for all the bicycle people to use. Stupid environmentalist lets take away parking spots from a very busy neighborhood good job JVB hopefully he never wins another public office again
Once again blacks and Hispanics causing crime. The facts are the facts! Stop denying it.
You seem like a nice person with a deep and well-researched understanding of complicated issues.
“Jerry”, how do you suppose we can remedy this? seems like you might have some great racist ideas.
Once again blacks and Hispanics committing crime. The facts are the facts! Stop denying it. Maybe more studying and less fighting and more would be admitted into Stuyvesant. I don’t see the Asian kids fighting in the streets after school.
Racist much? Yes you are!
Once again a racist, off topic statement from these race obsessed aholes. Ha. Those 10 he kids I was telling you about yesterday in a post above… They were all Asian.
More guns=more homicides and suicides. Sadly, if this guy didn’t have a gun, we would probably just have a guy with a black eye and hopefully another who gets help with his mental health issues.
Guns don’t kill people , people with guns kill people including themselves. If it wasn’t a gun it could have been a machete or a knife then we would have to ban knives
Knives are already banned in NYC…but I agree with you. Why do we ban bombs? Bombs don’t kill people, people do.
I am sure it wasn’t a licensed fire arm
Employees (other than LEO’s) are already forebidden from having firearms on company property. The rules are already in place and they didn’t stop this from happening. The strictest of gun laws won’t, and don’t, stop violent acts from being committed. Please don’t drag your personal political agenda into a workplace violence incident.
People can break any law. Does that mean we shouldn’t have laws?
Don’t worry crime is down
It was a work place dispute, a personal matter stupid. Here are the most dangerous states in America for 2019 according to FBI.
These are almost all Republican conservative strongholds, move to one of these places.
So if a “crime”happens at a job site, it’s not a “ crime”? Because they were on the job? So if I rob someone st my job, it’s not a crime , just a labor dispute? Lol, you have 4+(at this moment ) of your identities agreeing with yourself. There is help out there for you.
@dough-Wow you’re really putting words in the guys mouth. He never said it wasn’t a crime. His post seems to be the position against the “lib” posting handle. Hence the conservative reference.
The entire country is a Republican stronghold.
Why would you politicize a personal tragedy?
Yeah, like California, Oregon, Washington State, Minnesota, Illinois, etc..
Then why are so many socialist liberals moving to these states from the “Utopian” places they’ve created? Do they love danger??
Thanks, many of us are going to retire to Red States where we can defend ourselves and not deal with fools like you! Also, low tax states. Enjoy DeBlasioville!
That’s it Mrs. Geriatric, own the libs by moving as far away as you can as soon as possible. Do you have an ETA on how long until we don’t have to read your hateful diatribes on this site?
Anyone who disagrees with you is hateful
You can’t hsnfle the truth
Red states: the least educated, poorest,worst access to healthcare and most racist. Enjoy!
Smug much? Then you wonder why people are leaving New York in droves? #Trumpfor2020
Crime is down, near historic lows.
But don’t let facts get in the way of your “feeling.”
Obviously, crime is worrying and this and other recent events are troubling, but they do not necessarily show the whole picture.
Unfortunately, thanks to conservative gun nuts, other nuts can easily get guns, making crime worse when it occurs. Not to mention accidents and suicides.
City and state leadership keep decriminalizing, so crime will drop.
They’re anti-2nd Amendment in Cuba, why don’t you move there?
It’s kind of hard to respond to a comment that is so dopey.
Crime is being UNDERREPORTED and low level crimes not even reported. Do you live up to your nickname?
Crime is nothing like it was in the 70s, 80s and 90s here. If you were here or if you are being honest with yourself and others, you would admit that.
As for nicknames, I have no idea what you’re talking about.
It’s kind of hard to report crime when we are rudely questioned by 911 operators and desk cops at the police stations. They are just looking for you to admit you are racist and the perp you are calling about is just black. Not assaulting women, not chasing children down the block, not throwing things at their mothers. Nope, it’s just our racist asses making all this crap up.
Why do I think this tale about a racist is about you?
Dear hmm very specific… So you obviously don’t know the tall, thin angry drunk homeless man who sometimes hangs around the 52nd street station and John Vincent Daniels square. He was doing just what I said above. And he was grabbing up women’s skirts AS I was on the phone with 911 about a belligerent and drunk homeless man harassing others. It was the last day of school and the children were now running about the square, riding bicycles and scooters. The 911 operator refused to send the police (I waited a half hour) and called me a racist.
Good point, a single crime in a city of 8 million means all crime stats are fake
“Shall Not Be Infringed.”
Sweet. Where can I buy my landmines and rocket launchers?
Don’t know about those. But you can buy firearms in a gun store. Providing you don’t live in a socialist state.
You can’t buy landmines and rocket launchers in your state? Sounds like socialists to me.
Those aren’t firearms. But you already knew that, right?
Looks like police had him at gun point from behind a car at the rite aid (52nd street 7 train stop)
Maybe “Going Amtrak” is the new “going postal.”
Duh…Must be homeless and Amazon fault
Is that the best you can do? #libsaregutless
Watch out, liberals are coming to the comments in 2019.
Or worthless like you.
