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.

Both shooting victims are believed to have no criminal records, reports said. Henry was a hard-working man, with two jobs, who had aspirations of going back to college and playing basketball, according to the New York Daily News.

Police are still looking for the gunman, who was wearing a gray hoodie, the Daily News also reported.
