In a press conference, NYPD Chief of Patrol Jeffrey Maddrey revealed that at around 11:35 p.m. ET, members of the violent crime unit were in Springfield Gardens, Queens, near 219th Street and 130th Avenue.

They were watching the celebration because they thought there would be violence involving some of the neighborhood street crews, he continued.

When a group of unidentified guys pulled out at least three guns and entered the same intersection, the plainclothes cops were in an unmarked car.

Three of the males were captured after a gunfight between the investigators and the group of men, according to Maddrey.
The three men were shot in the same places.
