Two People Shot Outside Melrose Ballroom

July 24, 2018

ASTORIA – According to police reports, “a 27-year-old man and a 34-year-old woman were each shot in the leg during a dispute outside the Melrose Ballroom on 33rd Street near Broadway in Astoria around 4:20 AM,” on July 21, the New York Post reported. The alleged shooter then fled the scene in a Maserati and the victims were taken to the hospital for treatment, the police said.

Melrose Ballroom was created by Basil Messados and Tony Georgiton and has hosted some of the best-known Greek performers including Dimitris Mpasis, Anna Vissi, Giannis Ploutarchos, and Michalis Hatzgiannis. The National Herald contacted Mr. Georgiton who told TNH that he was not there and had no idea what happened outside the well-known party space and concert venue and so could not comment on the incident.

Melrose Ballroom Production Manager Jimmy Panagiotou was contacted via email and told TNH that he is currently in Greece and also did not have any information on what happened.

TNH also left messages with Mr. Messados and at the Melrose Ballroom offices but has not received a response at press time.
