A man who apparently shot himself dead in Queens last week was found early Tuesday in a car buried under several feet of snow, police and fire officials said.
The victim, believed to be in his 20s, was discovered about 12:30 a.m., slumped over in the driver’s seat of a car near 162nd St. and Laburnum Ave. in Flushing.
Police believe he killed himself in the vehicle with a shotgun, which was recovered. He may have been dead since last Wednesday, police sources said.
Two men and a woman arrived at the car about 3 a.m. and one man began to shout.
“That’s my son,” he screamed. “I want to see him. I want to see him! That’s his brother. Let us see him!”
One resident who lives across the street said he didn’t recall hearing a shot fired.
“I never thought anything of the car being there for a few days,” said the resident, who asked his name not be published. “The car behind it has been buried under snow for three weeks now. People leave their cars buried around here. It didn’t make me look twice.”
