A 50-year-old man was shot to death near this Flushing intersection on Wednesday night.

Detectives are searching for the suspect who engaged a 50-year-old man into a conversation before fatally shooting him in the head on a Flushing street late on Wednesday night.

Authorities said the shooting occurred at 11:58 p.m. on July 27 in the vicinity of 35th Avenue and Farrington Street.

According to police, the victim — 50-year-old Richard Brown of Hempstead, Long Island — got into a conversation with the gunman, who is described as a black male with a light complexion. It is not known if Brown and the gunman were known to each other.

Officers from the 109th Precinct and EMS units responded to the scene. Paramedics rushed Brown to NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The investigation is ongoing.
