Two men sought in fatal shooting of cabbie in Queens

Two men are being sought in connection with the fatal shooting of a 62-year-old livery cabdriver in Queens, New York City police said Saturday.

Responding to a call just before midnight Friday, police found Jaroslaw Bielawski of Greenpoint, Brooklyn, with a single gunshot wound on 11th Street near 36th Avenue in the Ravenswood section, outside the offices of Crosslands Limousine car service.

He was pronounced dead at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital's Weill Cornell Medical Center at 1:41 a.m.

Police said that two men fled the scene in a vehicle. Police said the men were not believed to have been passengers in the livery cab.

Robbery does not appear to have been the motive because nothing was taken, police said.

A woman answering the phone Saturday afternoon at Crosslands said she had no immediate information about whether the man worked there.
