Alleged gunman in Queens road-rage shooting arrested

A driver who allegedly shot another motorist in an apparent road-rage incident in Queens has been arrested, police said Wednesday.

The 32-year-old victim was blasted in the stomach after the two men stopped their cars in traffic on Queens Boulevard near 65th Place in Woodside at about 7:30 p.m. July 15, according to cops.

The two started punching each other before one of them, Champ Richardson, pulled a gun and shot the other man in the stomach, sources said at the time.

Richardson, 36, was arrested Tuesday night and charged with attempted murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon, according to the NYPD.

The victim was taken to Elmhurst Hospital and was treated for non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Police Commissioner Dermot Shea announced the arrest Wednesday afternoon.
