3 Separate Shootings in Queens Leaves 1 Dead, 3 Others Injured: Police

Three separate shootings in Queens on Sunday left one person dead and three others injured, police said, and they all happened within three hours of each other. 

In Brookdale at around 8:30 in the morning, three men were sitting in a silver vehicle when one got out and shot the others inside, killing one and leaving the other injured, police said. 

One victim, who is 38 years old, was shot in the head, police said. He was taken to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The other, who was 40 years old, was struck in the stomach, police said. He was also taken to the hospital, where he is in stable condition, officials said. He is expected to survive. 

No one has been arrested. Police didn't know the relationship between the men. 

In Flushing around 9:45 Sunday morning, a 32-year-old woman was shot one time in the head and taken to Jamaica Hospital, where she is in stable condition, police said. She is expected to survive her injuries. 

An eight-month-old baby was sleeping nearby when shots rang out, officials said. The baby was not hurt. 

A man, the woman's 43-year-old boyfriend, was arrested at the scene, police said. Two guns were also recovered at the scene, according to officials. 

In Rosedale at around 6:30 a.m., a 37-year-old man was shot in the neck and taken to Jamaica Hospital, police said. He is expected to survive, authorities said. 

A man wearing camouflage was taken into custody, and was later arrested, police said. A female was taken in for questioning, but she has not been arrested or charged, officials said. 

Community Activist Tony Herbert spoke out Sunday about the Mother's Day violence. 

The guns just keep going off," Herbert said. "Those who have these guns are laughing in the face of our justice system and prison system saying that you cannot contain us because we’re going to continue to do this because we don't fear going to jail."

The NYPD is still investigating all three shootings.
