A 31-year-old Queens Village man was shot and killed early Saturday morning in Far Rockaway, police said.
Edwin DeJesus, of 210-25 Hillside Ave., was shot once in the abdomen at about 4:15 a.m. by an unidentified assailant in front of 250 Beach 15th St. in Far Rockaway, according to police.
DeJesus was taken to St. John's Hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said. There were no arrests in the ongoing investigation.
According to a law enforcement source, the victim had been involved in an altercation earlier that evening at the Backstage Sports Bar and Grill in nearby Woodmere, L.I. He then took a cab back to Rockaway, where he was seen entering 250 Beach 15th St. The source indicated that the house was the residence of a woman DeJesus was romantically involved with, but it was not immediately clear if the woman - or the unidentified shooter - was with DeJesus at the bar or in the taxi.
DeJesus was seen leaving the building followed by the suspect, described as a tall black male, just before the shooting occurred, the source said.
