Cops are looking for the killers who shot and killed a Bronx man during a robbery down the block from a strip club on Saturday night.

Jose Alvarado, 45, of Walton Avenue was gunned down near 673 Hunts Point Ave. in Hunts Point at about 11:57 p.m. on Sept. 24, police reported.

Officers from the 41st Precinct, in responding to a 911 call about the shooting, found Alvarado at the location with a bullet wound to his head.

EMS rushed the victim to Lincoln Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Based on a preliminary investigation, police determined that three unidentified males approached Alvarado after he parked near the location and exited his vehicle.

The three suspects then robbed Alvarado, and during the incident, one of the thieves opened fire on him, law enforcement sources said.

According to police, the suspects then hopped into Alvarado’s vehicle, a gray SUV, and fled the location. They were last seen traveling northbound along Hunts Point Avenue.

So far, no arrests have been made in the ongoing investigation, police said.
