Cops Yet to Make Arrests Following Corona Mass Shooting

(NYPD)

Aug. 26, 2021 By Allie Griffin

Police have yet to make any arrests in relation to a mass shooting that left 10 people injured in Corona last month.

The NYPD is still looking for two gunmen who opened fire on a crowd in front of a Mexican restaurant on 37th Avenue on July 31 — as well as two getaway drivers — in what police believe was a gang shooting.

The department released two new surveillance photos Wednesday and is also offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to their arrests.

Two of the suspects fired approximately 40 bullets at a crowd on 37th Avenue, between 97th and 98th Streets, and struck 10 people.

Seven of the victims were innocent bystanders and three were members of the Trinitarios gang — the intended targets, police said.

The gunmen were then picked up by two men on mopeds, which were used as getaway vehicles to flee the scene.

The victims ranged in age from 19 to 72, police said. None sustained life-threatening injuries.

The NYPD has also released descriptions of the four suspects.

One shooter was seen wearing a black hoodie, black mask, gray pants and black sneakers. He used a handgun to fire multiple shots. The other shooter, who also fired multiple shots, was wearing a hoodie, mask, gray pants and black sneakers.

One of the moped riders was seen wearing a gray sweater with an American Eagle logo and black pants. The other moped rider was described as wearing a red sweatshirt.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782).

The public can also submit tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at nypdcrimestoppers.com, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
