In a half-block from High Line park in Chelsea, three people were shot, one of them fatally, according to police reports from Sunday.
According to law enforcement sources, the victims include an off-duty assistant deputy warden at Rikers Island who survived being shot in the leg.
Shots were fired on W. 10:20 p.m., 25th St., and 10th Ave. Cops said that Saturday.
An injured 42-year-old guy was taken by emergency personnel to Bellevue Hospital, where he passed away.
His identity was not immediately made public.
While off duty, Janae Gregg, a 32-year-old assistant deputy warden with the Correction Department, was shot in the leg.
A 37-year-old guy who had been shot in both legs made his way privately to Lenox Hill Hospital.
Police reported that he was in good condition on Sunday morning.
Gregg, a veteran of the city’s Department of Correction with 11 years of service, said she was shot at a “meet and greet type of event with pop-up stores and different vendors and whatnot.”
She claimed that it was at the event where she first met the other victims and that she didn’t think she was the intended victim.
On that night, I met them. It just so happened that [the victim] walked over. The gunfire then rang out, according to Gregg.
“I’ve never met the victim. I was silent to him the entire evening. Before the occasion, I had no prior acquaintance with any of them.
On its website, Lavan 541 describes itself as “the appropriate environment for business conferences, product launches, pop-up activations, fashion presentations, social and non-profit events, as well as photo and film shoots.”
The shooting took place outside of this venue.
Before being shot, it wasn’t known whether the victims went to an event or elsewhere.
As she recovered from her wound, Gregg said, “Nothing odd happened that night, or I would have left.”
I’m OK, she affirmed. “I’m in a nice mood. A touch sore, but otherwise well.
Police have not made any arrests.
