A man was found fatally shot in front of this Duane Reade pharmacy on Roosevelt Avenue in Woodside on July 10.

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.

that entire triangular park has been taken over by homeless who are always drinking out of open contianers, get drunk, fight each other and harass passerbys. not long ago thye harassed a feamle walking home from the train, got home upset and some combination of her boyfriend/brtoher/neighbor went down to confron these vagrants. maybe they messed with the wrong person and this time it was a gun not a talking to. it should have been cleaned up months ago. if i were to sit out in the open with an open container i'd get a summons. yet they were allowed to steal alcohol from 7-11 then drink it out in the open for far too long
