2 men shot dead in apparent murder-suicide at hotel near JFK
Two men were shot dead in an apparent murder-suicide near JFK Thursday.
Six men were sitting in the café of the Hilton Garden Inn around noon when one of them pulled out a gun and shot the other in the head at point-blank range, before turning the gun on himself, according to the New York Post.
The four other men attempted to run, but were held by the police for questioning.
“A group of men walked into a meeting room in an area just beside the lobby,” Queens District Attorney Richard Brown reportedly said at the scene. “One of the individuals stood up and fired a weapon at another individual. And then turned the weapon on himself. At the moment there are men who are in custody.”
He reportedly decline to elaborate on whether the incident might be linked to the Russian mob, which has been known to operate in Ozone Park.
