Update: Man, 25, Shot Dead in Flushing Movie Theater Parking Lot

Jaquan Campbell (Facebook)

Oct. 1, 2018 By Tara Law (Updated 10/2)

A 25-year-old man was shot and killed in an early morning auto heist in the parking lot of a Flushing movie theater on Monday.

Jaquan Campbell was in his car, a black Lexus sedan, with his girlfriend in the parking lot of College Point Multiplex Cinemas, 28-55 Ulmer St., shortly before 3:24 a.m.

The couple’s vehicle was suddenly sideswiped by a BMW, which spun around in the collision. 

Four masked men hopped out of the BMW and held the couple up at gunpoint, forcing them to get out of their car.

The couple exited their vehicle, but Campbell started to argue with the masked men. 

One of the men shot Campbell once in the chest. The four drove off in their own vehicle and in the couple’s car.

Campbell’s girlfriend called 911 and reported the shooting. Emergency responders pronounced Campbell dead on the scene.

No one has been arrested yet, but the investigation is ongoing.
