Cops Move Contentious Beachgoers Off Beach 116 Street
Shots Fired Call, Male Stabbed Sunday
Police officers on foot and in automobiles roved the beachfront at Beach 116 Street on Sunday, after shots were heard on the beach and a young man was stabbed. Numerous fights broke out, causing the NYPD and Parks Department to close that one beach for the rest of the day. Police officers from the 100 Precinct and the Patrol Borough Queens South Task Force stopped and searched several suspects and their automobiles, which were parked in the former Beach Club lot. No weapons were found and no arrests were made in relation to the gun charges. Police officers tell a family that they had to leave the beach and boardwalk at Beach 116 Street. Adjacent beaches remained open until 6 p.m. Large groups of teens and young adults left the beach and headed for the A Train and bus stops along Beach 116 Street.
