NEW YORK (AP) — A 19-year-old man was shot to death early Monday while standing inside a Queens subway station, police said.

Police responded to the elevated Broadway stop on the N line in Astoria after a report of shots fired at 1:15 a.m. They arrived to find Jose Sierra, 19, of the Bronx mortally wounded from a gunshot wound to the head, police said.

There was no apparent motive in the slaying. Police said a group of up to five men were seen fleeing the scene after the shooting, although no arrests were made and the investigation into the Labor Day killing was continuing.

I would like to offer my condolences to the family & friends of Jose Sierra. I also hope the people responsible for this horrific crime are brought to justice!
