Police are searching for a pair of gun-toting suspects involved in a late-night shooting incident in Maspeth this past weekend.

On Saturday, April 14, at approximately 10:50 p.m., the unknown individuals fired several gunshots in the vicinity of 69th Place and the Long Island Expressway, according to police. One of the shots struck the rear window of a 41-year-old man’s car that drove by the scene, police said.

Sources familiar with the investigation said that police have not determined if the victim was the target of the shooting. The victim told police that he saw a group of people arguing and then heard approximately three gunshots before his rear window shattered.

According to authorities, a bullet casing was found inside the victim’s vehicle.

Officers from the 104th Precinct responded to the incident; no injuries were reported at the scene.

In the video released by the NYPD seen below, one of the suspects appears to be brandishing a pistol and stuffing it into the front of his pants.

The first suspect is described as a black man who was last seen wearing dark-colored clothing and a jacket with several patches on it.

The second perpetrator is described as a Hispanic man with a beard who was last seen wearing a black sweater, blue jeans and black and white sneakers.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
