A gun-wielding guttersnipe opened fire outside of a Strickland Avenue bowling alley in Mill Island, sending three people to area hospitals early Dec. 12.

The triggerman turned up outside of the lanes between Mill Avenue and E. 60th Place at 2:22 am, hoping out of a White Dodge minivan before heading into a vestibule that lead into the lanes, cops said.

Inside, he got into an argument with another guy, but the pair took it out onto the sidewalk, according to police.

The conflict climaxed when the weasel reached for a gun in his coat pocket and started blasting, cops said.

The gunman shot three men, ages 19, 20, and 22, striking all three in their legs, according to police.

Cops said it’s unclear who the gunman was shooting for — or why — but said the man he’d been arguing with escaped without a scratch.

Investigators recovered five shell casings and two 9mm rounds from the scene, cops said.
