A 20-year-old was killed outside his Laurelton home Monday in a shooting that left another man injured, police said.

The two men were shot at about 2:35 a.m. at 137th Avenue near 219th Street, cops said.

The victim, identified by police as Dowayne Henry, suffered a gunshot wound to the head and abdomen, and was pronounced dead at the scene, officials said. A second man, 25, was shot in the back and taken to Jamaica Hospital in stable condition.
