Detectives are investigating an apparent Queens drive-by shooting on Sunday afternoon that left a man dead and another seriously injured.
Law enforcement sources said the bullets rang out at about 12:28 p.m. on Dec. 16 in front of a home on 146th Terrace near Guy R. Brewer Boulevard in Springfield Gardens.
Based on a preliminary investigation, police determined that an unidentified shooter inside a silver vehicle opened fire on the two victims while speeding past them on the street.
Officers from the 105th Precinct, in responding to a 911 call about the gunfire, found the first victim — 34-year-old Dashon Borden of 144th Drive in Springfield Gardens — with a bullet wound to his back. EMS rushed him to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
Cops said the second man, aged 28, took a shot in his foot, and is in stable condition at Jamaica Hospital.
So far, no arrests have been made in the ongoing investigation, police said.
