A woman is dead — and two others injured — following a hail of gunfire outside an Astoria bar during the early hours Thursday morning.

The shooting took place outside Solletto, located at 23-66 Steinway St., just after 4 a.m. and left a 27-year-old woman dead after being shot in the torso and leg. Meanwhile, another woman, 27, was shot in the left knee, while a 27-year-old man was struck in the buttocks and left shoulder.

The woman shot in the torso was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital-Queens by EMS but couldn’t be saved. The two others were both transported by EMS to NYC Health & Hospitals/Elmhurst and are in stable condition.

The shooting took place following a heated argument outside the bar. It is unclear what sparked the argument.

The shooter, a man, fled the scene in a white BMW, cops said.

All three victims had been inside Solletto before the shooting, police said. It is unclear if the shooter had also been inside the establishment.

The deceased woman’s identity has not yet been released. Police, however, said she was the girlfriend of the man who was shot.

Police said that the female victims were twin sisters.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.

I always pass by this place when i go to the $1 slice joint on the next block. Its always dirty and smelly. One of the owners of a nearby store said he is afraid when going to work and leaving work on tv. Area has a lot of sketchy people.


If you live in NYC and you don’t know how to get a way from it, you don’t belong here. Go back to Omaha.


I’m sure a person driving a car was the driving force behind this death. That’s what TA would say.

Typical! Car drivers do not have their aggression under control and rather reach for the gun than switch on their brain!

Just 2 weeks to flatten the curve

If you are at a bar at 4:00 AM don’t expect good things to happen.

Fox Meets the definition of cult

@PMS- A big difference in misusing a gun as a movie prop and using a gun to murder people in the street.

Yet again

This is a democrat state and a sanctuary city.
Seems like there are an awful lot of guns from the supposed peaceful side of politics.

Gun crime: Thanks Republicans.

Where did the gun come from?

How could so many people be allowed to get guns?

Whose fault is that?

Thanks, Republicans.

who's fault is that??

These guns were purchased illegally by criminals from criminals out on the street. These illegal guns are not affected by gun control legislation.

Who lets these criminals run free on our streets??

Thanks progressive democrats!!!
