Police released photos of two men
they believe shot a 23-year-old
in Ridgewood a little over a year
ago on Thursday, Sept. 3.
On Friday, Aug. 30, 2019, police
arrived to 62-44 60th St., around
10:52 p.m., to find Alexander Pedraja
with a gunshot wound to his
back, according to the NYPD.
Following the shooting, two men
were observed on surveillance video,
released by the NYPD this week,
fleeing the scene in a dark-colored
sedan south on 60th Street.
Pedraja, who was across the
street from his Ridgewood home
when he was shot, was rushed to
NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst,
where he was pronounced dead.
Surveillance footage further
shows two men on the stoop of the
house Pedraja was shot in front of,
moments before the gun fire occurred,
Anyone with information
