This story is so sad yall. Imagine losing your life while celebrating your birthday?
According to the NY Post an NYPD school safety agent and popular Instagrammer was shot dead on her 27th birthday outside a Queens nightclub early Thursday.
Her current boyfriend and ex-boyfriend got into a gun battle and she was struck in the fray, according to cops and police sources.
The agent, whose birthday was on Wednesday, her boyfriend, and her cousin were celebrating inside Solletto on Steinway Street near Astoria Boulevard N, the sources said.
At some point, the agent’s ex-boyfriend showed up – but when he tried to enter, the bouncer stopped him because he had a gun on him, according to the sources.
When the trio walked out of the club just after 4 a.m., the agent’s ex got into a scuffle with her boyfriend, the sources said.
Both men pulled out guns and fired at each other, the sources said.
The agent was struck in the torso and leg by stray bullets, according to cops and the sources.
She was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital-Queens, where she was pronounced dead, cops said.
Her name was not immediately released, pending family notification.
Her 27-year-old cousin was also blasted by a stray slug in the left knee, and her boyfriend, who turned 27 Thursday, was struck in the buttocks and left shoulder, authorities and the sources said.
They both were taken to Elmhurst Hospital in stable condition.
He wrote on his stories, earlier today:
The ex-boyfriend fled after the shooting in a white BMW that was stopped in New Jersey for speeding, the sources said.
New Jersey cops did not know he was wanted for the shooting, so they confiscated the car but let him go, according to the sources.
Police were still on the hunt for him later Thursday.
