A gunman killed a guy in a Seventh Avenue restaurant in Sunset Park on Dec. 7.
Police arrived at the Popeyes near the corner of 61st Street at 9:37 pm and found the victim with gunshot wounds to the head, torso, and right arm, police reports state. Officials identified the victim as 68-year-old Yingguan Chen of W. Ninth Street in Bensonhurst.
Emergency responders transported Chen to Lutheran Medical Center where doctors pronounced him dead, police said. Photos from the scene show blood-soaked napkins and a pool of blood left on a chair and table at the restaurant where Chen sat.
It is not immediately clear what motivated the slaying, law enforcement sources said.
