News reports say police officers in New York have gunned down a man at a “raucous” barbecue in the Far Rockaway section of Queens, New York. Sources told the Daily News that police shot the man — who was armed — after he himself shot at another man at the barbecue.
Local media reported the incident late Friday night. Reports said that police were called to the scene of a “raucous” barbecue at Redfern Ave. near Hassock St in Far Rockaway, Queens at about 11PM.
A witness told the Daily News that a fight had broken out at the barbecue. “There was a big barbecue over here. A bunch of kids on this side hanging out. It started as a fistfight and then shots rang out. The kids were teenagers, 16 or 17,” the witness, who identified himself only as “David,” told the Daily News. He added, “I saw a kid on the floor with his face busted up. There was a kid in cuffs. He was laying there on his side in cuffs, he looked motionless. Everyone was crowded over there.”
