A 25-year-old Flushing man who lost control of his BMW and died in a crash on Parsons Boulevard Sunday had been shot prior to the incident—and police have ruled the case a homicide.

Tao Wu, of 158th Street, was driving his vehicle westbound on 37th Avenue at around 9:50 p.m. when he struck the sidewalk at the Parsons Boulevard intersection causing his 2022 BMW to roll over.

EMS arrived on the scene and transported Wu to New York Hospital Queens where he was pronounced deceased. No one else was injured in the crash.

Police said Tuesday that Wu had sustained a gunshot wound to his upper back prior to the collision and that they have launched a homicide investigation. The NYPD has yet to make any arrests.
