BB gun-wielding child terrorizes Astoria park: Parenting website

ASTORIA — A father and his daughter allegedly terrorized an Astoria park with a pellet gun Tuesday morning, according to the parenting website queensmamas.com.

The man allegedly fired several shots into a tree from the realistic-looking firearm before handing it off to his young daughter, who the author estimated was about 4 years old, the website reported.

The gun-wielding tyke then proceeded to repeatedly point the gun at other children playing in the park, according to the site, which chided the 114th Precinct for its response time.

The incident did not sit well with City Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. (D-Astoria), who took to Facebook and discussed the matter.

“if you recognize this idiot let me or the 114 know. and i WILL get to the bottom of why the cops took so long. i was getting calls from the location too [sic],” he said.
