Homicide detectives are continuing to investigate two separate, deadly shootings in Brooklyn and Queens on Sunday that appear to be gang-related, sources familiar with the investigation said.
The search is on for the suspect who gunned down a 30-year-old man in front of a home on a Queens block early on the morning of Oct. 3.
Roberto Borrego, 30, of Lefferts Boulevard in Kew Gardens was found shot multiple times in the torso and the back in front of a home on 85th Avenue off Chapin Parkway, across the street from Captain Tilly Park, at about 7:25 a.m. Sunday morning.
Officers from the 107th Precinct, in responding to a 911 call at the Jamaica Hills location, found Borrego unconscious and unresponsive on the sidewalk. Responding EMS units pronounced him dead.
Sources familiar with the case indicated that detectives are examining whether Borrego was a gang member. So far, investigators have yet to determine a possible motive, or a description of the shooter.
Later on Sunday, a 25-year-old man was shot to death at a public housing complex in Brooklyn.
Kizer Williams, 25, of Belmont Street took a deadly bullet to the chest in front of 180 Powell St., at the Seth Low Houses, in Brownsville at 4:47 p.m. on Oct. 3.
Members of the 73rd Precinct discovered the wounded Williams while responding to a 911 call about a man shot at the scene. EMS rushed him to Brookdale University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
Law enforcement sources described Williams as a possible gang member, though the motive for his murder remains unknown as this time. Police have also yet to obtain a description of his killer.
So far, no arrests have been made in either homicide case.
