Three women shot outside Far Rockaway storefront church: NYPD


Three women were shot in front of a storefront church in Far Rockaway on Tuesday evening, Jan. 17, according to authorities.

Police from the 101st Precinct are searching for the gunman who allegedly opened fire on a crowd that was reportedly waiting to get into a vigil for Quayshawn Samuel, who was killed last month in an officer-involved shooting at the Ocean Bay apartments complex in Arverne.

The Jan. 17 shooting occurred in front of 14-25 Central Ave. just before 9 p.m. Police say two of the women were shot in their feet and one was shot in her leg and all three victims — ages 48, 46 and 26 — were rushed to area hospitals, where they were listed in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries.
