Two shots were fired at a vehicle in a car chase through Forest Hills Tuesday.
The suspects, who were in a blue Honda Accord, drove up alongside a man who was in a vehicle on Yellowstone Boulevard–near Ingram Street–at around 4:20 p.m. The driver of the Honda spoke to the victim through the window while a passenger in that vehicle brandished a firearm.
The victim, 34, immediately drove off and the suspects followed him in the blue Honda. During the chase, the passenger in the Honda leaned out of the window and fired two shots at the victim’s vehicle.
The victim drove to the 112th Precinct on Austin Street and the two suspects fled the scene on Austin Street. There were no injuries reported.
The police have few details as to the suspects other than the operator of the Honda is believed to be Hispanic, while the passenger is described as a male who was wearing a gray shirt or sweatshirt.

We see a lot of cars with minority kids, blasting their car radios, cruising through Forest Hills. The mystery is why are they here. Some suspect Manhattan/Brooklyn developers might be behind it, to make Queens unpalatable to home buyers.
Enjoy the free music our ridiculous high taxes afford us. Along with the litter these individuals throw out of their car windows as they sit in traffic along Yellowstone, Metropolitan and Austin. These people are not from here, cut through here, litter here, noise pollute, and degrade the overall quality of life here and we are penalized with higher taxes and given politicians who have turned a blind eye on FH and the Queens borough as a whole. Enough already.
Amazing. Our Mayor doesn’t see an uptick or issue? Perhaps “DEFUND” leads to more problems? We need stop and frisk again and we need an aggressive approach to crime like we had with Guilliani and Bloomberg. Start with quality of life issues and small crime work your way up from there to the larger ones. This is getting out of hand. If Cuomo’s tax hike goes through then who will want to pay a premium to live in a crime filled city?
