At least ten people have been injured in a shooting in the New York district of Queens, as reported this Sunday by the Police Department of the US city.

Thus, the Police are looking for four people as suspects and have indicated that they would be “gang members” who came to the scene with “multiple weapons and masks.” “This is unacceptable on the streets of New York City and it has to stop,” demanded Police Chief of Detectives James Essig.
