Queens man dead in early morning shooting in Amityville, police say

Homicide Squad detectives are investigating an early morning shooting in Amityville that left a Queens man dead Thursday, Suffolk County police said.

Suffolk police said they also were investigating shooting injuries to a second man, who, according to Amityville police, was later discovered wounded at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Bethpage. Investigators said it was not immediately clear if the two incidents were related — or part of the same incident.

Amityville police officers and Suffolk First Precinct police officers responded to a 911 call of shots fired at a townhouse-style apartment complex at 100 Park Ave. around 5:15 a.m. When they arrived, officers found Romario Williams on the ground with a gunshot wound. 

Williams, 25, of Flushing was taken by Amityville Fire Department ambulance to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip where he was pronounced dead. 

The second wounded person was then located at St. Joseph’s, police said.

Suffolk homicide detectives became involved because they investigate all shootings involving victims, but police said details were still emerging.

Detectives ask anyone with information on the shooting to call the Homicide Squad at 631-852-6392 or call anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS.
