According to sources and law enforcement officials, a man from Queens was shot and left in critical condition as a result of a home invasion robbery that appeared to be premeditated.
According to police, a group of eight suspects wearing masks surrounded a residence on 62nd Avenue near 138th Street in Flushing at approximately 5:30 a.m. The victim, who is 31 years old, was present inside the home during the incident.
According to sources from the police department, the crew could be seen in the video, which was obtained through the homeowner, dividing into pairs and groups of three as they tried to enter through various entrances of the house, including the front, side, and back doors.
According to authorities, during the incident, one of the group members managed to break the front window and gain entry into the victim’s home. However, the brave victim fought back and attempted to push the intruder back outside.
According to authorities, the crew made off with $800 in cash and an iPad before hastily leaving the scene.
According to authorities, four individuals managed to flee the scene in an SUV, while the remaining four chose to make a run for it on foot.
According to police reports, the victim was rushed to NewYork-Presbyterian Queens Hospital in a critical condition.
According to the victim’s downstairs neighbor, who spoke to The Post on Wednesday, the perpetrators entered the premises and demanded to know the whereabouts of the money.
According to an anonymous neighbor, the burglars forcefully took their phones and instructed them to stay quiet. The neighbor was petrified when the burglars broke a window upstairs and fired a gunshot. They were immobilized and warned not to move or make any noise.
