By Ledger Staff
A man was killed and a woman was left injured after a shooting during the wee hours of the night this past Saturday in Elmhurst.
Police say that on Jan. 21 at around 4 a.m., they responded to a 911 call reporting that a man had been shot at Amadeus Nightclub, located at 79-51 Albion Avenue.
When they arrived at the scene, officers observed a 19-year-old man with gunshot wounds to his back and shoulder, and a 31-year-old woman with a gunshot wound to the buttocks.
Emergency medical services responded and the male victim was transported to the nearby NYC Health & Hospitals/ Elmhurst, where he was pronounced deceased.
The female victim was transported to the same hospital, where she’s listed in stable condition.
A preliminary investigation determined that there was a dispute inside the nightclub that continued outside, where an unknown individual discharged a firearm multiple times, striking the victims.
The unknown individual fled the scene in a black and white SUV to parts unknown.
The identity of the deceased is pending proper family notification.
There are no arrests at this time and the investigation remains ongoing.
