EAST WILLIAMSBURG — Police are asking for help in identifying a person of interest in the fatal shooting of a Bronx cocaine dealer inside a Flushing Avenue nightclub in March.

Three men went up to Jefferson Exantus, 22, inside M2 Brooklyn Asylum, near Scott Avenue, before one of them shot him the head March 19 around 5:20 a.m., according to police.

Exantus was taken to Woodhull Hospital but could not be saved.

He had 12 prior arrests dating back to 2009, three of which were for selling drugs. In October, he pleaded guilty to selling cocaine and was sentenced to six months in jail, according to the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.

Anyone with information about the man in the surveillance footage is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
