Another shooting event in the 101 Precinct, this one at 2:01 a.m. on Sunday, August 30. Police say that  a victim remains in stable condition at St. John's Episcopal Hospital after being shot once in the torso. Police are looking for a black female shooter who was wearing a gray hoodie and dark pants. Statistics show that the victim was the eighteenth person shot this year in the 101 Precinct, down slightly from last year, when 20 people where shot during the same period. In addition, there have been thirteen shooting victims in the 100 Precinct, up from nine last year at this time -- making a total of 31 shooting victims this year in comparison with 29 last year.


​Still another shooting in the 101 Precinct, this one at 9:59 p.m. on Sunday night at 25-18 Seagirt Boulevard. While details are sketchy, police sources say that a male victim was shot in the head, but there is no word on his condition except that he was transported to an area hospital. Police officials called a level one mobilization, which brought strategic response units from all over southern Queens to the scene, as well as ESU for an evidence search and aviation. This makes 19th shooting victim in the precinct this year, down one from last year. There have been 32 shooting victims on the peninsula this year, compared with 29 at this time last year.
