New picture of 4 men wanted in Queens triple shooting, Mayor Adams to hold crime meeting

FRESH MEADOWS, Queens (WABC) – Friday morning, the search for armed men in what the NYPD says was a gang-related shooting.

The NYPD released a photo of the four men they will question after the shooting Wednesday afternoon on 188th Street.

You can clearly see one of them with a drawn pistol.

Two 18-year-old men, one of whom was the apparent target, were injured.

A 14-year-old girl who was also caught in the shooting got a bullet in the neck.

The NYPD is holding a meeting on Saturday with their top people to talk about fighting crime with an unusual element.

“These crime plans, what their ideas are, they’re specific to each neighborhood, what gangs are at odds with each other, what’s going on, what high school parties are going to happen. We need to know these things going forward. So, I think “That’s what it’s all about. What’s unusual here is that the mayor will lead it,” said Robert Boyce, ABC News Contributor and former NYPD Chief of Detectives.

Meanwhile, students at Francis Lewis High School had to go through metal detectors on Thursday.

It was there that two of the victims went to school.

Police found no weapons, but they found 20 weapons or prohibited items, which they confiscated from students.

School security agents say they believe students carried these items for safety after knowing two of their classmates were shot.
