A man was shot dead outside a Corona deli Wednesday in what police say was a gang-related killing.

Police responded to a 911 call of an assault taking place near Corona’s Finest Grocery Corp., located at 57-18 108th St., at around 5:10 p.m.

Upon arrival, police found a 29-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his head lying unconscious and unresponsive on the sidewalk.

EMS responded and transported the victim to Elmhurst General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The police have a suspect in the case, who allegedly fled northbound on 108th Street after the shooting. He is described as a Hispanic male who was wearing a red hoody and black pants.

The victim’s name has yet to be released, pending family notification. Police said he was a resident of Queens and a member of a gang.

There have been no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.

After he is apprehended, may I ask:
What is the immigration status of this “…Hispanic male who was wearing a red hoody and black pants.” ?

Truth be told.

Bring back the anti-crime unit, stop and frisk works , Corona, Elmhurst, and Jackson Heights are infested with criminals and gangs . AOC , Jessica Ramos , Cruz , Daniel Dromm do nothing to stop the violence.
