Police recovered a firearm, two knives and four shell casings

Cops cuffed two perpetrators and confiscated knives and a stolen gun in Whitestone last weekend after investigating reports of shots being fired in the middle of the night.

On Nov. 11 at around 12:50 a.m., police responded to a 911 call at 19th Avenue and Parsons Boulevard and observed Elvis Rodriguez, 32, of Brooklyn walking away from a gray Nissan Sentra and Alison Melendez-Soto, 25, of Woodhaven standing at a bus stop near the vehicle.

Upon further investigation, each individual was discovered to be in possession of a knife, according to authorities. Additionally, four shell casings were recovered from the ground at the location.

Both individuals were subsequently placed under arrest. There were no reported injuries.

Authorities later obtained a search warrant for the Nissan Sentra and recovered a stolen .380-caliber Bersa firearm, which was in the trunk of the vehicle.

Rodriguez has been charged with criminal possession of a weapon, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of stolen property. Melendez-Soto was issued a criminal court summons.

An NYPD spokesperson could not provide details on what direction the shots were fired in or if the incident stemmed from a dispute.

The 109th Precinct‘s Anti-Crime and Patrol units responded to the incident, according to a Facebook post published by the precinct.
