Man Shot At Ocean Bay Houses

By Howard Schwach

An unidentified 32-year-old man was shot on February 12 as he walked in front of 3808 Beach Channel Drive in the sprawling Ocean Bay public city housing complex.

Police say that the man was walking on Beach Channel Drive and Beach 38 Street at about 1:15 a.m. when a shot rang out.

While he told police he did not know his assailant, the victim gave police a partial description of the man, sources say.

The bullet hit the man’s middle finger, went through his forearm and lodged in his thigh.

He was transported to the trauma center at the Jamaica Hospital Center, where he was treated and released.

Police officials called a Level 1 Mobilization, which brought specialized NYPD units such as canine and aviation to the scene, as well as cops from all over southern Queens.

Detectives from the 101 Squad in Far Rockaway are investigating. Anybody with information on the shooter is urged to call the squad at 718-868-3429.
