Two Jamaica men have been arrested on charges including second-degree murder in the shooting on Saturday that left a Hollis man dead and another man wounded.

Edwin Fernandez, 34, and Brunildo Guichardo, 28, both residents of the same apartment building on 89th Street, also have been charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon in the early-morning shooting that killed Martin Delrosario, 33, of Jamaica Avenue.

Authorities are alleging that the suspects shot Delrosario and another man as they sat in a vehicle on 163rd Street.

The NYPD said officers from the 103rd Precinct responded to their location to find Delrosario suffering from a single gunshot wound to his chest. He was pronounced dead at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center.

The second man received a leg wound and also was treated at the medical center.

Police did not immediately comment on a possible motive for the killing. The department said the investigation is continuing.

Welcome to the discussion.
