Thanksgiving violence leaves one dead, one critical in NYC

Thanksgiving got off to a bloody start in New York City — leaving one person dead and another in critical condition after a spate of shootings and stabbings late Wednesday and early into Thursday morning, cops said.

A man was shot dead in his car around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday near 145th Drive and 184th Street in the Brookville section of Queens, authorities said. 

When cops responded to the intersection, they found the 40-year-old victim unconscious and unresponsive in the driver’s seat of a 2018 Nissan Maxima with gunshot wounds to his chest.

He slammed into a telephone pole after being shot, cops said. 

The man, whose name has not been released pending family notification, was taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. 

No arrests had been made by Thursday morning, and the motive was unclear.
