A man was shot in front of a Roosevelt Avenue Dunkin Donuts this weekend, according to the NYPD.

Police said that two white men approached a 37-year-old man on Sunday at 2:20 p.m. in front of the Dunkin Donuts at 89-22 Roosevelt Ave., and asked him how old he was.

One of the two men then displayed a firearm and shot twice at the 37-year-old, with one bullet grazing him in the head, police said. The suspects then fled northbound along 89th Street.

The victim was removed to Brookdale Hospital, not likely to die, according to the NYPD. Upon arriving at the hospital the victim refused medical attention.
