A woman was shot and her daughter pistol-whipped during a robbery outside a hotel near JFK Airport Thursday night, reports said.
The attack happened at about 8:40 p.m. at the Hampton Inn on 135th Avenue in South Ozone Park, Queens, Pix 11 reported.
A 53-year-old woman from Maryland was inside the hotel and had left her daughter waiting in a car in the front parking area outside of the hotel, police told the New York Daily News. That’s when two armed robbers pistol-whipped the daughter and took her jewelry.
The mother confronted the robbers as she was walking out of the hotel, according to the Daily News, and was shot once in the chest. The robbers then reportedly fled in a white car.
As of late Thursday, the suspects were still at large.
