Feb. 12, 2019 Staff Report
Police have identified a third suspect wanted in the deadly shooting last Sunday at the 90th Street Station in Elmhurst.
The unidentified suspect is described as Hispanic, between 20 to 25 years old, and last seen wearing a dark “New York” skull hat, all dark clothing and white sneakers.
NYPD released the suspect’s information yesterday, days after the agency identified two more men wanted in connection to the incident. The two men are still at large.
The Feb. 3 broad daylight shooting saw Abel Mosso, 20, die after he was shot at multiple times on the Manhattan-bound 7 train platform.
Mosso had been aboard a 7 train heading to the station at around 12:45 p.m., when a dispute ensued between him and the alleged shooter, police said. The dispute turned physical after the train pulled into the station, with bystander video recording the scuffle and capturing the sound of about five to six shots from a gun.
The alleged gunman, 26-year-old Ramiro Gutierrez, was arrested on Feb. 4 and charged with murder, gang assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
Both Gutierrez and Mosso are believed by police to be members of MS-13 and the 18th Street Gang, respectively. The nature of the deadly Sunday incident, however, is still under investigation.
Anyone with information on the identity of the suspects should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-8477, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
