Feb. 5, 2019 Staff Report
Police are searching for two men in connection to Sunday’s deadly shooting at the 90th Street Station, which has already resulted in the arrest of the alleged gunman.
The two suspects, whose identities are not known to authorities, are both described as Hispanic and between 30 to 35 years old. One of the suspects was last seen wearing a dark-colored hat, a red scarf over his face, dark sweatshirt and white sneakers.
The second suspect (seen in surveillance video below) has a slim build, according to police, and was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, black pants and black sneakers.
Video and photos of the two unidentified suspects, who are wanted for questioning after 20-year-old Abel Mosso was shot to death at a station platform two days ago, were released by authorities yesterday—the same day 26-year-old Ramiro Gutierrez was arrested.
Gutierrez, who police believe is the gunman behind the broad daylight shooting at the 90 St – Elmhurst Av station, faces charges of murder, gang assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
Authorities said yesterday that Gutierrez is a known MS-13 member, and that the victim is part of the 18th Street gang, a rival group. Despite the gang ties, police at the time said it was too early to pinpoint what the motive behind the fight and eventual shooting was.
“We don’t know if this was a chance encounter, if they knew each other, [or] if this is the third time they’ve have a fight this week,” said Dermot Shea, NYPD Chief of Detectives. This is [a] preliminary investigation.”
Gutierrez and at least one other person, Shea said, were disputing with Mosso inside a Manhattan-bound 7 train en route to the 90th Street Station just before 1 p.m. on Feb. 3.
The dispute turned physical when the train reached the station, with the fight spilling onto the platform.
A graphic, viral video of the incident caught the scuffle on the platform, where five to six shots can eventually be heard.
Mosso was later pronounced dead at the scene by EMS.
Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-8477, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
Three FACTS about the shooter!
1) He was an illegal immigrant
2) He had an illegal gun
3) He was a known MS13 gang member that was locked up and released 12 times.
A Border Wall, ICE or Stop & Frisk could have prevented this murder.
When is Mexico going to pay for a border wall, the way the president promised? Or is he going to shutdown the government again to beg the democrats for money?
Stop and Frisk wouldn’t of prevented this. When have you saw a stop and frisk procedure on a train platform?
The person that did the murder the other day was an illegal… and arrested 5 times. google it. He was not allowed to be deported because NYC is a sanctuary city. Its now up to the citizens to protect their own because the politicians and NYPD wont! A well armed republic is a polite republic.
Wtf are you talking about . Nyc doesnt prevent people like him to not be deported.
The 115pct should hold a meeting about crime in the neighborhood.
115pct impact should have a CRASH unit.
Any word from District 25 Councilmember Daniel Dromm ??
Dromm is too busy favoring illegal alien criminals over US citizens, as is lord emperor Cuomo and mayor putz DeBallzio.
“Always give your best, never get discouraged, never be petty; always remember, others may hate you, but those who hate you don’t win unless you hate them, and then you destroy yourself.”
There’s more traffic agents giving out tickets in Jackson Heights and no police on foot patrol.
115pct impact – they need to be more aggressive towards these criminals.
Cuz was unlawfully carrying a handgun in NYC, was a known gang member, and had prior involvement with local law enforcement officials. Unfortunately for him on that day, there specifically on that train platform, wearing his Mets jersey, baggy jeans and white sneakers, his ticket got cashed in for real. The up close photo of him shown lying supine on the concrete floating around the internet, all too well shows the results of settling for such a low choice lifestyle of neighborhood gang-banger.
Impossible! New York has strict laws against gun ownership.
NYPD needs to bring their Mobile Command Center to the area
115pct needs to be more proactive.
They need to be on foot patrol . Not standing around looking at their phones.
Patrol the Blvd, Avenue, and the side streets.
Also the playgrounds ( the handball courts because of weed smokers )
So when Trump said we have a problem with BAD HOMBRES people were laughing at him but what now? Why you scared ?
majority of the ms-13 gang were born in the US.
But, the shooter was not born in the US and is in the US illegally
bad hombres refers to the politicians stealing billions
