The New York Police Department (NYPD) said its detectives apprehended three men who fired on a party in Queens late Friday night. 

In a media briefing, NYPD Chief of Patrol Jeffrey Maddrey said that at approximately 11:35 p.m. ET members of the violent crime squad were at the area of 219th Street and 130th Avenue in Springfield Gardens, Queens. 

The detectives were observing a party in the area, including approximately 75 to 100 attendees. 

“And, they were observing this party because they believed that there was a potential to be violence involving some of the local street crews,” he explained.

The plainclothes detectives were in an unmarked car when a group of unknown men entered the same intersection and pulled out at least three firearms. 

They shot the guns into the vicinity of the party and the detectives – realizing that danger was imminent – exited their vehicle.
