A man was found murdered in the basement of his South Ozone Park home Tuesday morning and cops are searching for his killer.
At 4:48 a.m., police responded to a 911 call for help.
Police entered the house at 120-46 131 St. and found the man, whose name has not yet been released, inside the basement area with trauma to the head and multiple stab wounds about the body. EMS also responded to the location and pronounced the man dead at the scene.
Police believe the man was hit on the head by a brick and then stabbed. No one else was inside the home when police arrived.
There were no immediate arrests. The investigation is ongoing.
The murder happened only a few blocks from the Van Wyck Expressway near South Ozone Park’s border with South Jamaica.
It is the fifth homicide recorded in the 106th Precinct this year and the first since a Marine was stabbed to death in June several blocks away from Tuesday’s murder.
