Police have released two images of a suspect wanted in connection with a homicide that occurred over the weekend during a baby shower in Jamaica.
The victim was identified as Tymel West, 22, of South Jamaica, police said Sunday.
Members of the 103rd Precinct responded to a 911 call of shots fired at 10:50 p.m. Nov. 3 at a location on Guy R. Brewer Boulevard between 107th and 108th Avenues.
Upon arriving at the location, officers learned West had sustained multiple gunshot wounds to his torso. By the time officers arrived, authorities said, West had been taken by private means to Jamaica Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
More than 200 people had flocked to the streets after shots were fired, according to a witness on the scene. The NYPD Crime Scene Unit later secured the area to gather evidence for the investigation, which remains ongoing.
On Monday, the 103rd Precinct provided a wanted flier bearing the suspect’s image. He’s considered armed and dangerous and was last seen wearing a black hat, dark jeans, black shoes or sneakers and a dark hooded sweatshirt.
Anyone with information regarding the homicide is asked to call the 103rd Precinct Detective Squad at (718) 657-8220 or 718-969-5005. All calls are kept confidential.
