Gang shoots 5 on Roosevelt Avenue

Police said five people were shot on a busy Queens street at about 11:40 a.m. Saturday.

Both sides of Roosevelt Avenue had been shut down between 80th and 81st streets as police investigated.

Officers told News 4 New York it appears this may have been a gang-related shooting.

Welcome to Jackson Heights! It's VIBRANT!

Gang activity is increasing big time in Queens, just as its population is skyrocketing and its cops are decreasing.

This is what happens in an immigrant slum. Overcrowded, quality of life in the toilet, services vanishing, and a distant out of touch leadership going through the motions.

I thought Jackson Heights is gentrifrying.

Why do they always write about something in Jackson Heights, when it is in East Elmhurst, Elmhurst, or Corona?

Ok I get it. Those are communities of the tweeded. We can't have the International Express associated with a slum, can we now?

I guess that landmarking
Jackson Heights didn't solve the problems of ruthless gangs like MS13 etc. moving in.

From its days as a Colombian drug mecca up until now, it's still suffering the stigma of a crime fringed area.

I guess I'll have to dash home
warily and retreat into my gated garden community co-op hoping not to catch a bullet in the elbow and drop my scalding latte all over my feet causing third degree burns.
