A man is dead and three others are injured after a wild shooting in Elmhurst Sunday afternoon – in what police are investigating as a possible gang-related incident.

The broad daylight shooting erupted outside a house at 95-23 41st Ave. at around 1:35 p.m. when two unidentified suspects on a moped opened fire at the victims, police said.

Edwin Naula, 28, who lived at the 41st Avenue residence, was shot multiple times in the body, police said. He was transported by EMS to NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst where he was pronounced dead.

Three other men were also hit during the incident including a 32-year-old who was shot in the torso, a 29-year-old who was shot in the face and arm, as well as a 36-year-old who was shot in the hand. All three victims were transported to NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst and are listed as being in stable condition.

The two alleged shooters fled the location on the moped southbound on Warren Street, according to the NYPD. Police were unable to provide a description of the assailants.

Police Commissioner Sewell was at the scene late Sunday afternoon.

A video of the immediate aftermath of the shooting shows some of the victims being aided by police and first responders. The video was posted by @NY_Scoop, a social media page that posts about crime and traffic-related incidents in New York.

Many residents are on edge following the incident, noting that the area is no longer safe.

“Here has been very dangerous lately,” one neighbor told ABC7. “It’s not safe.”

Op-ed: Protecting Forest Hills Stadium

Jun. 14, 2024 By Thomas Grech

After more than a decade since its rebirth, it is unfathomable to consider Forest Hills without our venerable 101-year-old Forest Hills Stadium. The iconic venue is an asset to our community in so many ways – from creating jobs, to supporting local organizations, to providing invaluable links to our community’s rich history. Amazingly, a small band of unrealists who fail to understand that communities are constructed on the mutual grace and respect of our neighbors, want to shut down Forest Hills Stadium for good.

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
