Michael Waldman is taken into custody after allegdly pointing a shotgun at a co-worker's head.

The stars of Law & Order: SVU visited Queens this week to film a fake hostage scene while real crime occurred around the borough.

In Howard Beach, two construction workers got into a verbal dispute when one of them pulled out a rifle from his home and threatened to blow his co-worker’s brains out.

A five-alarm blaze in an Elmhurst apartment building displaced dozens of families and injured several firefighters. Police arrested a contractor who left an open flame near combustible material in the seven-story building, causing the fire.

In lighter news, a Glendale chef will celebrate 4/20 in Bushwick by serving a Prohibition-style dinner where foodies can enjoy delectable dishes infused with cannabidoil (CBD), a low psychoactive component of cannabis.

Here are the top 10 stores in Queens this week:
