EAST ELMHURST — Police released a photo of a man who sources said fatally shot another man on 95th Street in October

Karron Alston, 25, was found shot in the head and back at about 9:50 p.m. on Oct. 12, behind homes on 95th Street near Jackson Mill Road, NYPD officials said.

Investigators are now looking for Johnathan​ Baez, 26, who sources ​said was the gunman.

The men knew each other before the shooting, sources said.

There hadn't been any arrests as of Thursday afternoon, police said.
