A man was shot inside the Pomonok Houses NYCHA complex in Flushing last week and the police are now looking for four suspects.
The victim, 27, was shot during a social gathering that turned violent at the housing development, located at 70-29 Kissena Blvd., on Feb. 8, at around 1 p.m.
The 27-year-old was in a group with four men before one of the suspects pulled out a gun and fired off multiple shots – striking the victim in both of his arms, police said.
The suspects then fled the scene in an unknown direction, police said.
The victim was transferred to New York-Presbyterian Queens Hospital with his gunshot wounds by EMS. He was treated for his injuries and was later released, police said.
Police said the shooting is likely to be gang-related.
The NYPD released images of the suspects taken prior to the incident that were obtained from CCTV footage.
