Police are searching for clues in the latest murder to rock southeast Queens.

Officers responded to a 911 call around 11:20 a.m. Thursday and found a man dead in front of a house at 105th Avenue and Liverpool Street in Jamaica. The man, who some bystanders identified as Paul, was declared dead by EMS crews with a gunshot to the head, police said.

Neighbors crowded around the taped-off area of the block as investigators combed the scene.

“I just came home and saw the guy dead in the middle of the street,” said a man who lived in the house next to where the victim was found.

No suspects were named, the police could not release the identity of the 28-year-old victim and the investigation was ongoing as of Thursday evening.

A man who identified himself as Mike and as a friend of the victim, said the man lived nearby at 97th Avenue.

“I feel terrible,” Mike said after he arrived at the scene.

Southeast Queens has seen a surge of shootings over the last year, with many of the victims being shot in the head. This incident took place just two blocks from PS 50.
