A 36-year-old man was shot in a barrage of gunfire early Sunday morning outside a Queens nightclub, police said.
Residents who live near the club, Vibes, at Liberty Avenue and Remington Street, say it has a troubled history, and that the homicide is the most worrisome incident so far in a string of concerning disruptions that have come from the Jamaica venue.
Police identified the victim as Anthony Robertson, 36, of South Ozone Park.
Robertson was shot in the upper torso, around 4:43 a.m., and had been transported prior to the arrival of police to Jamaica Hospital in critical condition. He died later of his injuries.
At 143-06 Liberty Avenue, Vibes is a standalone on an otherwise quieter strip, and is surrounded almost entirely by residential blocks.
