NYPD: Man shoots his wife inside Woodside home, victim in stable condition

March 13, Staff Report

A Woodside man was arrested after shooting his wife in the stomach on Sunday night.

According to police, 54-year-old Victor Guzman was arrested around 7:45 p.m. on Sunday night for shooting his 51-year-old wife in the torso inside their home on 59th Street near Laurel Boulevard. Guzman’s 7-year-old grandson was in the house at the time of the shooting.

Guzman fled the scene, but was later arrested near 60th Street and Queens Boulevard.

His wife was taken to Elmhurst Hospital and treated for her injuries, which were not considered life threatening.

Guzman is presently being held pending arraignment in Queens Criminal Court on a criminal complaint charging him with second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child.  If convicted, Guzman faces up to 25 years in prison.

@sal. You dim wit. When you post something to a comment stream available to the public, it’s everyone’s business. Barbara is right about you, you’re not too bright.

What would make you hit a woman, never mind shoot your wife? This guy and anyone like him belongs put away for a real long time, and a child in the house too, what a sicko. I dont care what a woman does, put your hands in your pocket and leave.

All we know from this article is that he supposedly shot her. Maybe she was going to harm the 7 year old and he was protecting the child! Or maybe he was just sick of her sh*t. We don’t know. Maybe we should find out a little bit more about the circumstances before making judgment! (My guess is he was just sick of her sh*t).

Ceecee is right ,not all people that have Hispanic last names are illegal. Most of the hispanics are born here now. The problem is every time theres a butt grab or a stabbing it happens to involve a person with a hispanic last name. Then everybody jumps all over us with t he wall comments. Needs to stop. (The crime, not the wall comments) come on guys your letting our people down, act civil and people wont say these things about us. Your giving them a reason to bash us.

Poor low performing low wage and low IQ Sal needed something to say in the comment stream so he could feel relevant. Try to insert a value added post next time and one related to the topic of discussion next time, dim wit.

Over the five-year span ending in 2012, more than half — 56% — of the justifiable homicides involved strangers, and in 11% of the cases, the relationship was not reported. The rest were acquaintances (18.7%) such as neighbors and coworkers, and then a mishmash of relatives and personal relationships.
Conversely, of the 2012 criminal firearm homicides in which a relationship was reported, three out of four victims knew their killers, and more than a third were family members or “intimate acquaintances” — such as spouses, ex-spouses or others involved in a romantic relationship.

Ya know, if she had a gun, then this wouldn’t have happened. Guzman would be dead and everything would all be alright? Right? Right? Or maybe the child across the street would get a bullet hole in the head because the neighbor was celebrating a birthday. Or shooting at a shadow out of fear. Or because some stupid human didn’t lock the weapon up, and a ten year old shot their classmates.

On the other hand. It’s nice they caught the guy. Maybe the wall would have prevented him from immigrating, so there’s that. /sarcasm.

1st off that is racist you don’t know them or there issues and not all people with a Hispanic last name is a illegal immigrant!! He was born and raised in NY and he has a family that is suffering from this incident so have some respect to both of them.

Would you stop with the rasism because he is right, if you look back on all the news in the Sunnyside post it has been one crime after another reported and it’s had been mostly Hispanic names, now I know it is a bid Hispanic community so I know there are allot of great people out there but unfortunately the few ruin it for the many
