Police seek Springfield Gardens party shooter
From NBC 4:
Police are asking for helping identifying a man wanted for questioning in connection with the shooting of six people at a party over the weekend.
The suspect, as seen in this police sketch, is described as a black male, 20-25 years of age, approximately 5'8" tall, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark pants.
One person was killed and five others injured when shots rang out during a junior high school reunion party in Queens early Sunday morning.
The mayhem erupted around 2:15 a.m. outside a Springfield Gardens home on 182nd Street and 145th Drive . About 200 people were attending the IS 238-grad party, which then became a larger block party, police sources said.
It's unclear when the violence erupted, but a 20-year-old man identified as Dane Freeman was found dead on a sidewalk with a gunshot wound to his head, police said. Freeman was from Cambria Heights, police said.
The five wounded include two men, ages 25 and 21, who were each shot in the leg; a 23-year-old man who was shot in back; a 22-year-old woman shot in the shoulder; and a 21-year-old woman who was shot in both hands. All five of them are in stable condition.
There have been no arrests, and the investigation is ongoing.
