Teen Shot After Party Confrontation
A local teen was shot once in the lower abdomen outside of what police are terming a “youth party” at Wavecrest Gardens in Edgemere.
Just before midnight on Christmas day, the teens, accompanied by a crowd of onlookers, “took the fight outside,” ending up at Seagirt Boulevard and Beach 31 Street.
Police say that the two teens began to argue and push when one pulled a gun from his waistband and fired multiple shots, hitting the victim once in the abdomen.
The still-unidentified shooter fled the scene and police say they are looking for a suspect.
The victim was transported to the trauma center at the Jamaica Hospital Center, where he remains in stable condition. Police say that his wound is not life threatening.
Anybody with information on the shooting is urged to contact the 101 Precinct Detective Squad at 718-868-3429.
