A 17-year-old was shot dead outside an Elmhurst bar Wednesday in what police say was a drug-related killing.
Eduardo Hernandez was gunned down in front of Sabor Latino Restaurant and Bar, located at 95-35 40 Rd., at around 4:25 p.m., according to police.
Police responded to a 911 call of a shooting in the area and, upon arrival, discovered Hernandez with two gunshot wounds to his torso.
Hernandez, who is from 101st Street in Corona, had a BB gun in his possession, police said.
He was transported to Elmhurst Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Police said the suspect in the case fled northbound on 40th Road in a black sedan. There are no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.
It is the second fatal shooting on the street in just over a year. Dante Sartillian, 21, was shot dead on 40th Road on June 30, 2020.
any word from elected officials yet? Or are they out there being progressive and looking to defund the police while gangs and drug dealing engulf the areas they represent? Keep voting Democrat-a criminal’s best friend!
