Late last night, a man was shot outside the Delta-United terminal. WABC 7 reports that his body was "discovered" around 11:30 p.m. "near the central taxi hold area for yellow cabs, where several taxi drivers rushed to the man's aid. One called 911, while the shooting victim asked for a driver's cell phone." He was taken to Elmhurst Hospital for surgery and is expected to survive. MyFoxNY says that cops suspect "the victim may have been shot inside a vehicle or off airport property, and then dumped in front of the terminal"—a silver Pathfinder with three armed men reportedly fled the scene. And according to the Daily News, it was a "drug deal gone bad."
