A 21-year-old woman was shot in the face while sitting in a vehicle on the Whitestone Expressway early Monday morning, according to police.

The woman was a passenger in a northbound car on the expressway—near 20th Avenue– when it was fired upon by suspects in two other vehicles at around 3:20 a.m. The victim sustained a gunshot wound to her face and left hand. She was taken to NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens via private means, where she was treated and released.

The victim was in a gray 2004 Acura TL sedan, which had four occupants.

The perpetrators also fired multiple shots at another vehicle–a 2021 Nissan Sentra that was occupied by just the driver. The driver was left unharmed, although the vehicle was struck five times.

The suspects, according to police, were in a black sedan as well as a Mustang with rally stripes. Police released images of the vehicles Friday that were taken from in front of 124-03 18 Ave.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, on Twitter @NYPDTips
