A 73-year-old grandmother was wounded in a drive-by shooting in South Ozone Park Monday and the NYPD released video surveillance footage on Thursday evening that shows the car the alleged gunman was riding in.
Investigators say the incident occurred at 11:29 on the night of May 30 when a dark-colored sedan pulled up to a private home in the vicinity of 128th Street and 107th Avenue when an unidentified individual exited the vehicle and fired numerous shots at the home.
One of the bullets struck Margaret Henry in her right arm as she sat by a front window in her living room, police said. The vehicle was last seen heading eastbound on 107th Avenue from 128th Street in South Ozone Park.
EMS responded to the crime scene and rushed the victim to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center where she was treated and released. An NYPD spokesman could not provide further details on the shooting incident.
