Nassau County police have identified the Queens man who was shot to death at a birthday party in Uniondale Sunday night.
Police say the man, Jason Crafton, 27, of St. Albans, tried to avoid partygoers in the backyard of the party before they sought him out. Crafton was shot in the face, staggered out of the house and collapsed by the nearby Northern Parkway School around 12:51 a.m., authorities said.
Two other people were also shot and injured in the neighborhood Sunday morning. Police are investigating whether the incidents are connected.
