A 21-year-old woman was shot in the face while sitting in a vehicle on the Whitestone Expressway early Monday morning, according to police.

The woman was a passenger in a northbound car on the expressway—near 20th Avenue– when it was fired upon by suspects in two other vehicles at around 3:20 a.m. The victim sustained a gunshot wound to her face and left hand. She was taken to NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens via private means, where she was treated and released.

The victim was in a gray 2004 Acura TL sedan, which had four occupants.

The perpetrators also fired multiple shots at another vehicle–a 2021 Nissan Sentra that was occupied by just the driver. The driver was left unharmed, although the vehicle was struck five times.

The suspects, according to police, were in a black sedan as well as a Mustang with rally stripes. Police released images of the vehicles Friday that were taken from in front of 124-03 18 Ave.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, on Twitter @NYPDTips

NYC Test Scores Drop in Math, Increase in Reading

Nearly half of New York City’s third through eighth graders passed their state reading tests last school year, while about 38% passed math, according to scores released by city officials Wednesday.

The scores are the first measure of how students across the five boroughs have fared in reading and math since the coronavirus pandemic upended in-person schooling and left many children grappling with isolation and grief. Though schools gave students other city-mandated assessments last year, officials have refused to publicly release the results.
