Police are examining possible gang ties to a deadly double shooting at a Queens laundromat on Monday night that claimed the life of a 25-year-old man.

Law enforcement sources said that gunfire erupted just before 8:04 p.m. on Dec. 27 inside the JH Super Laundry at 94-01 37th Ave. in Jackson Heights.

According to sources familiar with the investigation, the two victims were inside the laundromat when several unidentified individuals walked into the shop and opened fire on them.

Responding EMS members pronounced Gayosso dead at the scene. Paramedics rushed the 21-year-old man to Elmhurst Hospital, where he’s listed in stable condition.
