On Friday, January 27, 2017, officials at St. John’s Cemetery at 80-01 Metropolitan Ave. in Queens, called police around 3 p.m. after a groundskeeper heard a gunshot and noticed an elderly man lying near a gravesite. Police and paramedics soon arrived. The man was transported to the hospital and we do not know his condition. Many of the employees at the cemetery know the man because he visits his late wife’s grave often. We are saddened about happened and are praying for him and his family.
