A man was shot dead in his car around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday near 145th Drive and 184th Street in the Brookville section of Queens, authorities said.
When cops responded to the intersection, they found the 40-year-old victim unconscious and unresponsive in the driver’s seat of a 2018 Nissan Maxima with gunshot wounds to his chest.
He slammed into a telephone pole after being shot, cops said.
