Helicopters are overhead searching for the suspect who shot a man in the chest inside a building on 37th and 88th.

Update - suspect in custody.

It's finally quiet. I'm in the building on the southeastern corner of 88th & 35th. Hope we get some facts. Getting sick of this.

Too many homicides in the 115th Precinct in the last year.

I attended a community NYPD meeting in the basement room of an apartment building on Northern Boulevard.  The format was ZERO input from attendees.  Not even an open mic for anyone to comment.

The woman hosting the meeting was into the pledge of allegiance, prayers and cheer-leading for the police, including letter reading by kids praising cops.  A member of the clergy spoke about Black History Month.  No one talked about the gang violence. 

The 115th sent no fewer than six NYPD staffers to the meeting.  But the meeting lacked any kind of request for community input.  There should have been some comments about the steady increase in corpses:

Bodega killing on Roosevelt (gang-related)  https://jacksonheightspost.com/man-fatally-shot-jackson-heights-bodega

Subway platform killing at 82/Roosevelt (gang-related)  https://patch.com/new-york/jackson-heights-elmhurst/jackson-heights-subway-fight-ends-fatal-shooting-police-say

Bound-up dead guy on 79th near Roosevelt (no info from cops)  https://nypost.com/2019/02/10/man-found-dead-bound-in-queens-apartment/

Shooting death 37th and 88th (this week)

Shooting on 37th near 90th (gang-related, according to cops who spoke with my wife while canvassing for video) https://jacksonheightspost.com/man-fatally-shot-jackson-heights-bodega

The NYPD lieutenant to whom I spoke at the community meeting told me the extra staffing in the precinct was handling the problem with visibility and force, especially along Rooseelt.

I disagree.  The vice unit isn't stopping the prostitution along Roosevelt from 76 to 80.  The menacing lookouts are still on the corners watching for trouble. 

Thugs wearing full face masks to avoid video and facial recognition software are allowed to roam unchecked. 

This neighborhood has so much potential that is being wasted because of lax enforcement.  My suggestion to NYPD is to add foot patrols who actually get to know the neighborhood merchants and residents.  Not the so-called "directed patrols" that merely send uniformed officers to Diversity Plaza or the 74th/Roosevelt MTA stop to stand around looking at their iPhones, or sit in their patrol cars.  That isn't policing.

Davey, Councilman Moya held a town hall 2 months ago, but we in this area didn't receive notice that I know of:
https://jacksonheightspost.com/moya-to-hold-town-hall-meeting-regarding-gang-violence-nypd-to-field-queens

Rumors are flying high in my building right now, so I will wait for more info--if it is forthcoming. I don't like it if/when murders are downplayed, intentionally or otherwise.

Searching for the news tonight, I also found that gang violence (stabbing) occurred at the QC mall at the time of the rapper book-signing melee. An association btw the two incidents was reported as "unknown" (downplayed?).

  I agree and as someone who was at the QC Mall around the time of the event/non-event with the rapper and the stabbing , it was extremely tense for everyone involved and was surprised at how little coverage it got. I am used to teens but this was something altogether out of control. The whole mall was on high alert for some time and loads of police were there but little information was
being passed out live or later.

For real? What part of the neighborhood? I never see them.
