Police are hunting for the suspect of a shooting after a young woman was killed last night in Queens.
Police say they responded to a call around 11 p.m. in St. Albans at 19th Street and Murdock Avenue, having been told there was an assault.
When authorities arrived, they found Teriana Holcombe, a 21-year-old local, unconscious after being shot in the head, NBC4 reported. Holcombe was pronounced dead after being rushed to the hospital.
Some speculate the shooting occurred in an explosion of tensions during a neighborhood dispute, sources told CBS2. Investigators are now looking for clues as to what exactly led to Holcombe’s death that night.
However, the Queens shooting was only the last of a series of violent events throughout the city last night, as five others were shot in the Bronx, Manhattan and Brooklyn, the NY Daily News reported.
Police said around 7 p.m. a bullet grazed the arm of a 16-year-old boy and a 17-year-old boy suffered a gunshot wound to the stomach in Harlem on West 129th Street close to Malcom X Boulevard. Both teens were treated for their injuries at Harlem Hospital.
Almost immediately following the attack, a scuffle in the Bronx near Freeman Street on Hoe Avenue caused yet another victim to take a gunshot to the stomach, this time a 35-year-old male. He is in stable condition at St. Barnabas Hospital, the Daily News said.
In the third episode, not long before the Holcombe murder, a masked shooter injured two 35-year-old men just before 9 p.m. in Canarsie on East 102nd Street close to Glenwood Road. It was reported that both are listed in stable condition at Brookdale University Hospital.
