SOHO — An emergency medical technician accused last year of ignoring a dying woman because he was on break was shot in the face and killed Sunday outside a SoHo nightclub.

Police said Jason Green, 32, from Long Island City, was shot once shortly after 5 a.m. and died almost immediately.

The FDNY confirmed to DNAinfo that he was the same man accused of ignoring pleas for help as Au Bon Pain worker Eutisha Rennix died in the coffee shop in December.

Police said Green had been refused entry to the Greenhouse nightclub, on Varick Street.

As he left, he was shot by a gunman who was in a car at the junction of Vandam Street and Hudson Street, about a block from the club.

No arrests had been made by Sunday afternoon, police said.

In December, Green and fellow EMT Melissa Jackson, 23, had been spending their break in the Brooklyn coffee shop, close to FDNY headquarters, when Rennix - who was six months pregnant - collapsed.

Jackson called a disaptcher, but the pair refused to give first aid, witnesses said.

Rennix and her premature baby died shortly afterwards.

Green was suspended for 30 days after the incident.
