Police Seek Two People Of Interest In Queens Double Shooting

Police want to talk to two Queens residents about a shooting in Flushing that killed a 39-year-old woman and wounded her teenage son on Saturday.

Investigators are looking for 21-year-old Lerome Robinson and 22-year-old Mark Coleman, both seen above, for key information about the shooting.

Police say an 18-year-old man, identified by the New York Daily News as Hassan Gil, walked into a precinct house and told officers he and his mother had been shot on Jewel Avenue.

Officers went to the scene and found Christina Coleman, 39, shot in the head inside a car. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Gil was shot in the chest.

Police do not believe Christina Coleman was the intended target, and it is not clear if she and Mark Coleman are related.

Neighbors said they were surprised that the woman was shot, but claimed the area has had a recent increase in gang violence.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit
