Detectives were grilling a man Monday in a Queens murder that may have been retaliation over a parking-spot spat. Hit the jump to read the rest of the story.
The suspect was questioned by detectives from the 102nd Precinct as loved ones of Roberto Adames, 25, paid their respects at a funeral home in Corona. No one has been charged in his death.
Adames and his brother, Jovanny Adames, 30, got into an argument Thursday night with two men who couldn’t squeeze their van past the brothers’ Cadillac. It was double parked on Austin St. in Kew Gardens, not far from their apartment, police said.
Angry words were exchanged, but the men in the van moved on, witnesses said. About five minutes later, as the brothers stood on a street corner near the scene of the argument, a man walked up to them and opened fire, police said.
Roberto Adames was hit in the torso. His brother was shot in the face and still in critical condition yesterday.
