Nov. 7, 2016 Staff Report
A 22-year-old Corona man was sentenced to 35 years in prison today after being convicted last month of trying to kill a police officer and another man in Elmhurst in 2014, according to the Queens District Attorney’s office.
Christian Mosquera, a known gang member, was sentence after being found guilty of a June 21, 2014 shooting, where he chased a man along Lamont Avenue and then began firing his weapon. When the police responded to the scene at about 1:45 am, Mosquera was asked to drop his gun but instead he fired one shot at the officers before fleeing.
Mosquera was nabbed by police a week later in Union City, NJ.
Queens District Attorney Richard A Brown said it was fortunate that no one was hurt in the incident. “Under the circumstances, the sentence imposed by the Court today is more than warranted.”
He should have got the 40, oh well, enjoy the food for the next 35 yrs mosquito
