Queens shooting outside restaurant
leaves off -duty school safety agent
dead, two others injured: NYPD
Cops are looking for the suspect behind a Queens shooting early in the
morning of Thursday, Dec. 23, that left a 27-year-old off -duty school safety agent
dead and two other victims seriously injured.
Law enforcement sources said the bullets rang out at about 4:08 a.m. on Dec. 23
outside the Solletto restaurant at 23-66 Steinway St. in Astoria.
According to Deputy Chief Julie Morrill, commanding offi cer of the Queens
North Detectives Bureau, Mye Johnson, 27, was with two friends, also age 27, at
the club celebrating their birthdays “amongst a large group of friends” when a
dispute broke out.
“Multiple persons fi red shots, and the three victims were struck,” Morrill said
during a press conference about the shooting on the aft ernoon of Dec. 23.
Offi cers from the 114th Precinct, in responding to a 911 call about the gunfi re,
found Johnson with multiple gunshot wounds to her torso and leg. EMS rushed
her to nearby Mount Sinai Queens Hospital, where she died a short time later.
Meanwhile, her two friends — another 27-year-old woman shot in the left knee,
and a 27-year-old man wounded in the buttocks and left shoulder — were brought
to Elmhurst Hospital in stable condition. Initial reports had incorrectly indicated
that the 27-year-old woman was Johnson’s sister.
No shots were fi red inside the club, according to Morrill. Detectives are now
reviewing “an enormous amount of video being viewed right now, including the
body cameras of the fi rst offi cers, video from the front of the club and other areas
of the location,” hoping to get views of the suspects responsible.
So far, no arrests have been made in the ongoing investigation, police said.
“This is very early in an active investigation,” Morrill said. “If anyone has any
information that could lead us in this investigation, we beg you to please call
