A Richmond Hill man was killed in his apartment Tuesday night, and police have taken a woman into custody in connection with the murder.
Police were called to 87-37 112 St. in Richmond Hill at 10:44 p.m. on Tuesday evening to respond to a 911 call of a man stabbed.
Upon arrival, officers found 55-year-old Lee Burrison lying faceup on the living room floor and bleeding from an apparent stab wound to the upper left side of his chest. EMS also responded to the location and transported him to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
A woman, whose name police did not release, was taken into custody from the scene and questioned at the 102nd Precinct, but no charges had been filed as of press time Wednesday.
Published reports say the police have been called to the home before for domestic disturbances and that the female in custody is the victim’s girlfriend, but the NYPD would not say if the killing is related to any domestic incident.
The investigation is ongoing.
