Teenager Shot Outside House Party
Detectives are looking for the partygoer who fired a 9mm handgun outside of a Rockaway Beach house early Sunday morning and sent a teenage reveler to the hospital with a bullet wound to his back.
Six shots rang out in front of the home at 311 Beach 89 Street at about 1:20 a.m. Sunday morning, police said. A 16-year-old male, who was attending a house party at that address, was standing a few yards away from the home with two friends when he was hit once in the back after an apparent dispute with another group. Witnesses said the group that the shooter was associated with fled immediately.
Police withheld the victim’s name because of his age, but said he was taken to Jamaica Hospital and was expected to make a full recovery.
Police are asking anyone with information to call the 100 Precinct Detective Squad at 718-318-4222.
