Detectives continue to seek clues in a deadly early morning shooting outside a pharmacy in Woodside on Tuesday.

Officers from the 108th Precinct responded to a 911 call about an unconscious man in front of the Duane Reade store, located at 60-02 Roosevelt Ave., at 12:31 a.m. on July 10.

Upon arriving at the scene, authorities said, the officers found the victim — an unidentified man in his 40s — unconscious and unresponsive with gunshot wounds to his torso. Responding paramedics rushed the man to Elmhurst Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

There’s no word yet on a probable cause for the shooting, or a description of the individual who fatally shot the man.

The crime scene is located a block west of the busy Woodside-61st Street station on the 7 line and the Long Island Rail Road.

No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.
