Updated on May 18, 2:30 p.m.

Detectives need your help in finding a man wanted in connection with the shooting of a 38-year-old man at the Queensbridge Houses in Long Island City on May 15.

According to the NYPD, the suspect got into a dispute with 38-year-old Woodside resident, Javares Batts, at 41-10 10th St. at about 4:46 p.m. on Monday afternoon. The suspect, identified as 34-year-old Justice Johnson, fired three rounds at the victim, hitting him once in the chest.

Police said Johnson then ran into the Queensbridge Houses at 41-11 Vernon Blvd. The victim was taken to Cornell Medical Center where he died of his injuries.

Cops recovered the firearm but Johnson, who lives at the Queensbridge Houses in 41-07 12th St., is still on the loose.

In 2016, residents at Queensbridge Houses celebrated one year with no shootings. A program called Cure Violence was introduced there to de-escalate conflicts.
