Police continue to investigate the shooting of a 27-year-old man in Woodhaven early Sunday morning.
According to authorities, the man was shot four times about his body following a dispute in the vicinity of 90th Street and 88th Avenue at 4:17 a.m. Sunday.
Law enforcement sources said the man got into a dispute with an unidentified male, who then shot him in the stomach, knees and buttocks before fleeing.
Officers from the 102nd Precinct and EMS units responded to the scene. The victim was brought to a local hospital for treatment of injuries not considered to be life-threatening.
A source familiar with the investigation said the victim was being uncooperative with detectives in providing information about the incident. The victim was observed on the ground writhing in pain, with a man standing next to him and a male and female standing next to a dark-colored sedan nearby.
Within seconds, the man standing next to the victim picked him up and ran northbound on 90th Street, while the male and female fled southbound on the street, sources said on Monday.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS, visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
