The NYPD released additional surveillance photos on Wednesday, Aug. 31, of two suspects wanted in connection to a fatal shooting outside of a St. Albans sports bar in February.

Diquan Orr, 33, of 115th Road in St. Albans was fatally shot close to the Cozy Corner Sports Bar and Lounge at 194-01 Linden Blvd. on the night of Feb. 7. The gunman then jumped into a dark-colored Nissan Sentra driven by an accomplice, and then fled the location eastbound on Linden Boulevard.

Officers from the 113th Precinct in Jamaica, while responding to a 911 call about the shooting, found Orr unconscious and unresponsive in the roadway in front of the bar, with a bullet wound to his chest.

EMS responded to the crime scene and rushed Orr to Long Island Jewish Valley Stream Hospital, where he died a short time later.

Sources familiar with the case indicate that detectives believe the shooting may have stemmed from a dispute that broke out inside the sports bar.

The alleged gunman is described to be 25 to 30 years old, with a dark complexion, who was last seen wearing a white-hooded sweatshirt, a black jacket, black sweatpants and black shoes. The driver of the Nissan Sentra has a dark complexion, is 25 to 30 years old, and was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants and black shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
