Food delivery worker shot to death on Queens street
A food delivery worker was shot to death while riding along a Queens street on Saturday night, police reported.
The shooting happened at about 9:34 p.m. on April 30 near the corner of 108th Street and 67th excursion in Forest Hills.
Officers from the 112th Precinct, in responding to a 911 call about shots fired at the location, found the victim, a 45-year-old man, unconscious and unresponsive with a bullet wound to his chest.
Citing police supplies, WABC-TV reported that victim worked for a nearby Chinese food restaurant, The Great Wall. It’s not clear, at this point, whether the victim was deliberately targeted, according to the report.
EMS rushed the victim to Elmhurst Hospital, where he died a short time later. Police have withheld his identity, pending family notification.
So far, no arrests have been made in the current investigation, law enforcement supplies said.
Anyone with information regarding the homicide can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA). You can also submit tips online at crimestoppers.nypdonline.org, or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls and messages are kept secret.
It was the second homicide to occur in the usually-quiet 112th Precinct in the month of April, which had no murders in all of 2021.
On April 16, Orsolya Gaal was brutally murdered at her home on Juno Street in Forest Hills; she had been stabbed more than 60 times and left in a bag dumped at nearby Forest Park.
Days later, police arrested David Bonola — a handyman who allegedly had an affair with Gaal — on charges that he killed her in a crime of passion.
