Masked Robbers Shoot Man During Home Invasion in Flushing, Queens

Police in Flushing, Queens are currently searching for a group of masked robbers who shot a man during a home invasion early Wednesday morning. The incident occurred on 62nd Avenue, where surveillance video captured hooded suspects attempting to break into a residence by first smashing the surveillance camera. At approximately 5:30 a.m., at least six armed and masked men forced their way into the basement where residents, including a child, were sleeping.

According to one tenant, the robbers held a gun to their head and demanded the keys to the Range Rovers parked outside. However, the residents informed them that the vehicles did not belong to them. The suspects proceeded to search the basement, taking $800 and an iPad, before moving upstairs. A woman living upstairs with her boyfriend called the police from their bedroom, while a 31-year-old resident confronted the suspects in an attempt to push them out.

During the confrontation, one of the suspects shot the 31-year-old resident in the chest and arm. He was immediately rushed to Booth Memorial Hospital in critical condition. The tenants described the robbers as acting like professional thieves, even cutting off their internet connection. However, after the robbery, the suspects returned their cell phones.

As of now, no description of the suspects has been provided, and no one is in custody. The police are urging anyone with information to contact the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip via their website or Twitter. All calls will remain confidential.
