Jan. 3, 2021 By Christian Murray

A woman was shot dead outside a house in East Elmhurst Saturday, according to police.

Police responded to a call at around 3:35 p.m. that a woman had been shot in front of 32-17 97th Street. Upon arrival, officers from the 115th Precinct discovered the woman, 37, with gunshot wounds to her abdomen.

She was taken to NYC Health + Hospitals / Elmhurst, where she was pronounced deceased. Police have not yet released the name of the victim and there have been no arrests.

The killing was one of several shootings to have taken place in Queens during the first two days of 2021.

There was a triple shooting outside the Umbrella Hotel in Kew Gardens on Jan. 1 that left a 20-year-old man dead and two others injured.

There was also a drive-by shooting at Queens Plaza South in Long Island City on Jan. 1, which left two men wounded.

Additionally, a man was shot in the shoulder during a home invasion on 212th Street in Queens Village just before 6 a.m. on Jan. 2.

DuhBlazio is a communist

This is what you get when you get rid of the Anti-Crime Unit.


Murder is almost always personal

Duh- This has absolutely nothing to with the anti crime unit. You’re showing that low information and disregard of the facts that you’re known for in your posts to this comment stream.


does it even matter? there is no justice system anymore. killers will be released the next day anyway with Mets tickets and gift cards and a hearty handshake from the mayor for a job well done.

A Normal Person

People who commit violent crimes don’t get released. Why don’t you do just a teeny tiny bit of research instead of saying the same tired bits?

Why does the Radical Right want everything to be PC?

Does it offend you that there are protests when police choke a man to death?

Or it just offends you when every death in NYC isn’t followed by a large protest?


The police didn’t kill him, one man did. But we blame all for the actions of a few. Would you condemn all plumbers if one could fix your sink? All POC if one stole your car? And let’s be real, mr Floyd was so full of fentanyl there was a good chance he’d expire just sitting handcuffed in the police car.


Too bad there weren’t less police and more bike lanes and drag queen story time when these shooters were kids.
