QUEENS — A 23-year-old man was fatally shot and an innocent bystander wounded when a gunman opened fire outside a South Jamaica club early Wednesday, police said.
Chad Baldeo, of East Flatbush, had just left Club Dubai on Merrick Boulevard near 127th Avenue when a gunman hopped out of a car and fired about a dozen rounds, striking him as well as another 23-year-old man who was putting fliers on cars around 3:50 a.m., police sources said.
Baldeo was wounded in the back and chest. He was taken to Jamaica Hospital where he died, police said.
The bystander was also taken to Jamaica Hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg.
Police said they were alerted to the gunfire by ShotSpotter, the recently installed technology that automatically notifies police of the sound of possible gunshots.
No arrests have been made.
