May 18, 2015 By Michael Florio

The suspect wanted for a fatal shooting on Roosevelt Avenue two weeks ago has been arrested.

Raul Zamora, 33, was arrested Saturday in connection to the May 5 shooting death of Jorge Manzanarez, which took place near the intersection of Roosevelt Ave and 93rd Street.

Zamora, who lives just blocks away from where the 93-12 Roosevelt Ave incident occurred, is facing charges of murder in the second degree and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.

According to authorities, Zamora and two individuals got into an argument with Manzanarez, before Zamora took out a gun and shot him in the torso. The incident occurred at approximately 2:20 pm.

The police believe the incident was gang related, with Zamora being a member of the Sureno 13 gang, according to reports.

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
