    Police Shoot Man Armed With Gun In Queens

    NEW YORK -- Police shot a man armed with a machine gun in Jamaica, Queens after he was spotted walking down the street, firing the weapon, police said.

    Police said they confronted the 33-year-old man at about 5:45 p.m. Monday evening. Police said the man had been firing his machine gun into the air in front of a Radio Shack on Hillside Avenue. Witnesses told police the man was walking west on Hillside when he opened fire.

    The man was taken to Mary Immaculate Hospital where his condition is unknown.

    One witness at the scene said he heard seven gunshots around the time the shooting was reported to have taken place.

    "It was 'Pow! Pow! Pow!,'" said witness Vincent Ho, who said he was at the dentist's office when he heard the gunfire. "All of the sudden, I heard shots. Everybody was running."

    Police said they followed the man behind the Radio Shack, exchanging gunfire with him, but no officers were hit.

    The shooting caused roads to be closed around the area, creating traffic problems. Police sealed off the avenue right in the middle of rush hour, which stacked up a dozen buses, leaving many unable to get home.

    Police said they recovered the machine gun. The shooting remains under investigation.

    Lawrence Mordaunt said the shooting shattered the calm of the improving section of Queens, where Hollis and Jamaica Estates meet.

    "A very good neighborhood," Mordaunt said. "Nothing of this magnitude, ever."

    I am calling BS machine guns are illegal in NY. So this can not happen.

    New York has strict gun laws. There is no way something like this would happen there. It must be a misprint

    Mac10's have a cyclic rate of 1,090 rounds per minute (limited only by the capacity of the magazine). So that means that the witness, in 0.385 of a second determinted that "Hey! That's (about) seven shots!"

    Must have been a semi-auto, wish a machiine gun does NOT make. I, too, call BS on this report.

    Sadly, I got in a debate a while back with a 40 year old friend who has now been convinced that black semi-auto rifles are all "assault weapons" and that they fire bursts.
