QUEENS — A man wounded by gunfire died in Elmhurst Sunday night after crashing a car belonging to a terrified motorist he had asked for help, authorities said.
Tesfari Davis, 32, of Corona, approached a woman parking her car in the neighborhood at 8:33 p.m. Sunday after suffering a gunshot wound to the neck and multiple gunshots to the legs, police said.
The woman panicked and jumped out of the car and Davis hopped behind the wheel and sped away, police said.
The victim ultimately crashed into an SUV near the Horace Harding Expressway and Junction Boulevard, where cops found him, police said.
The driver of the SUV got out to exchange vehicle information when he saw the victim “shaking and having convulsions,” a police source said.
Davis was taken to Elmhurst Hospital and pronounced dead.
There are no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.
Davis, who has three prior arrests, was busted in 2005 after his 5-year-old son took his .45-caliber handgun to school and gave it to a classmate, police sources said.
