Springfield Gardens party shooting suspects sought

Police were on the hunt for two young men who they said shot a teen outside a Springfield Gardens house early Saturday morning during a dispute at a party.

Kendrick Ali Morrow, 18, of Elmont, L.I., was found shot in the chest outside a house at 147th Avenue and 176th Street around 1 a.m., police said. The teen was rushed to Jamaica Hospital, but was pronounced dead at the hospital, according to authorities.

The murder stemmed from a late-night party at the house that turned ugly, police said.

Two men, whose ages are between 20 and 22, were allegedly kicked out of the party after they crashed it, according to investigators. The suspects then shot Morrow and fled the scene, police said.

Neighbors who live near the house said they did not hear any commotion of gunshots.

One of the suspects was described by investigators as 5-foot-8 with a stocky build with a dark complexion and was seen in a blue-and-yellow-striped, long-sleeve shirt. The other is described as 6-foot-1 with a light complexion, thin build and long braided hair and was seen wearing a gray T-shirt and blue jeans, according to police.

They had not been caught as of press time Tuesday and the investigation was ongoing.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crimestoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS, text their tips to 274637 then enter TIP577 or log on to All reports will be kept confidential.
