A woman is in critical condition after being shot multiple times in East Elmhurst Saturday afternoon, police said.

The victim was shot at 32-17 97th Street at 3:45 p.m. by a man wearing blue jeans and a beige jacket, authorities said, and was taken to Elmhurst Hospital in critical condition. No further details were immediately available.

The woman may have been struck in the abdomen, according to first responder radio transmissions.

The shooting was the second reported in the borough within 12 hours.

In that instance, a Queens man was shot as he answered his front door early Saturday — the only shooting overnight in the five boroughs, cops said.

Anyone with information on the shootings is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

The gunfire comes on the heels of Friday morning’s bloodshed, where one person was killed and two others injured in a triple shooting outside a Queens hotel, marking the first homicide of 2021, cops said.
