The NYPD is investigating the shooting death of a 22-year-old from the Bronx, who was found with a gunshot wound to his head in Rufus King Park in Jamaica earlier this month.

On Thursday, Oct. 15, around 4:40 p.m., police responded to a 911 call concerning a man shot at Rufus King Park, near the corner of 153rd Street and 90th Road, according to the NYPD.

Police arrived to find Numani Lambert unconscious and unresponsive with gunshot wounds to his head and arm, cops said.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
