Drive-by gunman critically wounds two who had left baby shower


A drive-by gunman critically wounded a man and woman who had just left a Queens baby shower in a BMW with a 14-year-old boy in the back seat early Saturday, police said.


The shooter rolled up on the victims’ BMW SUV on 101st St. near 32nd Ave. in Corona about 3:30 a.m. and fired at least three rounds through the driver’s-side window and door.


The 31-year-old BMW driver was hit in the elbow and stomach while the 37-year-old woman sitting next to him was struck in the back and arm, officials said. The teen in the back seat was not struck. The victims had just left a baby shower, cops said.


The gunman sped off and has not been caught.

The bleeding driver somehow managed to drive half a mile to the 115th precinct stationhouse on Northern Blvd., where the boy ran inside for help.


Medics rushed both victims to Elmhurst Hospital in critical condition, officials said.
