NEW YORK — Police are searching for a driver accused of shooting at multiple parked cars in Queens. In one instance, the gunfire struck a home where three people were sleeping inside.
The NYPD released new surveillance video on Sunday and they’re asking for help finding the person who was behind the wheel of a black SUV, CBS2’s Zinnia Maldonado reported.
The SUV was seen driving through a neighborhood in Whitestone at around 1 a.m. Thursday. The driver allegedly shot at four parked cars.
The video from police shows someone inside the SUV striking a 2007 Chevy van parked at the corner of 154th and 21st Street. A few minutes earlier, the suspect reportedly shot at a Jeep Wrangler on 15th Drive and 149th Street.
In the same hour, police said the driver shot at a yellow cab parked at 154th and 22nd Avenue and a Chevy Silverado on 20th Road.
One of those shots struck a home where three people were inside sleeping. No one inside the home was hurt.
Residents were alarmed and said incidents like this are unusual in the neighborhood.
