A 23-year-old man shot at a Woodhaven intersection on Saturday night isn’t doing much to help authorities find the person who pulled the trigger on him, police sources said.

The man was shot once in the abdomen at the corner of Jamaica Avenue and 89th Street at about 9:53 p.m. on June 6, authorities said.

According to police, the man was involved in a dispute with a group of unidentified individuals seconds before the shooting. After a member of the group pulled out a gun and opened fire on him, the injured man reportedly managed to run to the corner of 85th Street and Jamaica Avenue, where police were contacted.

Officers from the 102nd Precinct and EMS units rushed to the scene. The man was taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center and was listed in stable condition.

A police source described the victim as being uncooperative with detectives investigating the shooting.
