A 22-year-old man was shot near this Popeye's restaurant in Corona on Sunday night.

Cops are looking for a gun-toting suspect who walked up to a 22-year-old man and shot him near a fast food joint in Corona on Sunday night, police said.

Authorities said the shooting took place at 7:40 p.m. near a Popeye’s restaurant at the corner of 57th Avenue and 97th Street.

 

According to law enforcement sources, the 22-year-old male victim was walking eastbound on 57th Avenue when the unidentified suspect approached him, pulled out a firearm and shot the man once in the right leg. The shooter then fled the scene in an unknown direction.

The injured victim then hobbled across the street to an apartment building at the LeFrak City complex, where a 911 call was made.

Officers from the 110th Precinct and EMS units responded to the scene. The victim was rushed to Elmhurst Hospital for treatment of his injury, which is not life-threatening.

No arrests have been made, and an investigation is ongoing.
