Man fatally shot in head outside recording studio in Ridgewood
A man was shot and killed outside a recording studio in Queens early Monday.
The shooting happened just before 1:30 a.m at Summerfield Street and Wyckoff Avenue at an industrial building also being used as a recording studio.
Police responded to the scene after a 21-year-old man was shot in the head and killed.
Right now, the motive remains under investigation.
Neighbors described the terrifying moments they heard the gunshots.
“Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, there were several people coming outside,” one witness said. “So we came back, and now, there’s just a bunch of cops.”
It is a relatively quiet area where there were no murders in the precinct all of last year. Now, in 2022, they are up to seven shootings.
“I’m afraid,” one woman said. “I’ve lived in this neighborhood, two blocks from here and it’s not safe. It’s happening constantly. You hear about people getting shot all the time.”
