According to police spokeswoman Annette Markowski, the unidentified victim was sitting on the steps of Prince Charley Park at East 204 Street and Webster Avenue, at just after 11 p.m., on Saturday, May 9.
Markowski explained, "Three males and one female walked past the victim, when one male stared at the victim and a verbal confrontation occurred."
The victim suffered a gunshot wound to the upper right thigh and was transported by paramedics to St. Barnabas Hospital, he was expected to make a complete recovery.
Police describe the suspects as three white males and one white female, all believed to be in their 20's.
