Three people were shot in Queens including an off-duty correction officer.

The off-duty correction officer observed a man open fire at a vehicle during what was believed to be a holiday weekend celebration at Jamaica Avenue and 214th Place in Queens Village just after 8 p.m. Sunday.

The officer then fired, hitting the gunman three times. A second gunman then fired at the off-duty correction officer, hitting him once in the left leg.

Mayor Eric Adams said the shooters should have never been on the streets.

The NYPD and Mayor Adams held a press conference after a correction officer was among three people shot in Queens on Sunday.

The original gunman was taken to Jamaica Medical Center and the off-duty correction officer was taken to North Shore University Hospital Manhasset. Neither have injuries believed to be life threatening.

A third man was reportedly shot in the exchange of gunfire.

Police are checking the scene for evidence.
