Police have opened an investigation after a man with ties to Bayside was shot and robbed near his Queens Village home early Tuesday morning.

On June 5, an unidentified perpetrator approached a 46-year-old male victim in his car parked in Queens Village at 102nd Avenue and 220th Street at around 2:25 a.m., according to law enforcement sources. The suspect then took the victim’s car keys, wallet and cellphone and shot him in the face before fleeing the scene.

The New York Post identified the victim as Richard Eng, a Queens Village resident who was returning from his shift at a Bayside restaurant. Eng reportedly owns Black Label Donuts, which frequently operates as a pop-up at Nippon Cha of Bayside on Bell Boulevard.

News of the incident was shared on a local Facebook group and met with an immediate response. Residents wished the Queens man, who many knew from the neighborhood, a speedy recovery.

Eng was rushed to North Shore University Hospital in critical condition, authorities said. Officers from the 105th Precinct responded to the scene.

Authorities called for a level one mobilization for the suspect. The NYPD Emergency Service Unit was called to the scene, where they recovered ballistic evidence.

Police could not provide a description of the suspect at this time. The investigation is ongoing.
