NEW YORK - A woman who worked as an NYPD school safety agent was killed, and her boyfriend and another friend were injured in a shooting outside a bar and lounge in Astoria, Queens during a birthday celebration, the NYPD said.
According to officials, 27-year-old Mye Johnson, and her two friends, Johnson's 27-year-old boyfriend, and another 27-year-old woman were celebrating their birthdays among a large group of friends at the Soletto nightclub.
At around 4 a.m., a dispute began outside the location. Multiple shots were fired, and all three victims were struck.
