And no this is not a racists comment as some will say, but before I even read the article, I said to myself, probably a couple of black males in their 20’s or 30’s wearing hoodies and low and behold the police described the culprits as “black males between the ages of 20 and 30, both wearing black hoodie sweatshirts and blue jeans.”
Sharon Floyd-Wright who lives in the house with her husband Henry Wright, a states correction officer, managed to strike one of the men in the head with a hammer before they fled, police sources said. Hopefully, she cracked this hood rats skull wide open.
Yep, the usual Jamaica ghetto hood rats. And the powers to be want to stick more and more homeless shelters in this community. NO FUCKING THANKS, we already are filled to capacity with ghetto hood rats like these two scumbags who shot good upstanding hard working people of this community.
From Queens Times Ledger:
Two shot in Jamaica home invasion
Police were seeking two suspects who shot two people during a home invasion attempt in Jamaica Sunday evening. One of the wounded was a state corrections officer, police said.
Officers responded to a 911 call of two people shot at 6:56 p.m., police said, at a home near the corner of Mathias Avenue and 166th Street. When police arrived, they found an unconscious and unresponsive 58-year-old man with several gunshot wounds to the torso. They also found a 52-year-old woman with a gunshot wound to the shoulder., and the New York Post reported she managed to struck one of the suspects with a hammer before they left the scene.
EMS workers responded to the scene and took both victims to Jamaica Hospital, where they were listed in critical condition.
Police described the two suspects as black males between the ages of 20 and 30, both wearing black hoodie sweatshirts and blue jeans. The two suspects forced their way into the house and shot both victims, police said. After opening fire, one suspect fled east on Mathias, while one fled westbound.
Police said no arrests had been made and the investigation was ongoing.

From New York Post:
A state corrections officer and his wife were shot by two invaders in their Jamaica home Sunday evening, cops said.
The men broke in just before 7 p.m. and pumped five slugs into the torso of Henry Wright, 58, and another into the shoulder of his wife, Sharon Floyd-Wright, who struck one of the men in the head with a hammer before they fled, police sources said.
The two were rushed to Jamaica Hospital and were expected to survive. Police were still seeking the two gunmen late Sunday.
“[Wright] wasn’t dressed — he was wearing boxer shorts, no shorts” said neighbor Mario Farez, 34, who witnessed the aftermath. “She wanted to go with him in the same ambulance but they wouldn’t let her.”
The suspects are described as men in their 20s, wearing black hoodies and blue jeans, and a canvass of local hospitals was underway to identify them Sunday night.
About a dozen members of State Corrections and NYPD gathered in the ER at Jamaica to show their support for Wright as he underwent surgery late Sunday.
His neighbors told The Post that he had lived in the Queens home “for years” — and that someone apparently broke into the house a few months ago, as well.
“He’s a good dude,” an anonymous friend said. “This was his wife’s father’s house. S**t is crazy, man.”
