Police have identified a man shot and killed during a home invasion and kidnapping in Woodmere early Tuesday.

Tristen Theodore, 20, was fatally shot as he attempted to escape a black 2004 Infiniti that was leaving the scene of the home invasion on South End Avenue at 1:40 a.m. He succumbed to his wounds about nine hours later, Nassau County police said.

Theodore was one of two men kidnapped during the robbery. Police said the other man leaped from the vehicle and survived unhurt.

One of the men was the son of the homeowners, who were asleep during the home invasion, police said. The other man was a friend who was living in the home. It was still unclear Friday whether the victim was the son - or the family friend.

Police have not identified the other kidnap victim or the homeowners.

Police said as Theodore and the other man were returning to the home from Elmont, two gunmen jumped them, forced them into the home and stole undisclosed proceeds, then forced the two men into the homeowner's car.

The man who escaped from the moving vehicle was not bound.

Theodore was partially bound, police said. He was shot as he fled, then ran through several yards before banging on the door of a home, where he collapsed.

The residents called 911. Theodore died at a hospital at 10:45 a.m.
