Man killed during fight at Queens halfway house

An elderly man was killed and another injured during a wild brawl in a Queens halfway house Sunday morning, cops said.

Cops found a 70-year-old man with a serious head injury and a 64-year-old man with bruises on his face when they arrived at to the home on Beach 113th St. and Rockaway Beach Blvd. in Rockaway Park around 6:30 a.m.

Medics rushed the septuagenarian to St. John’s Episcopal Hospital, where he died. The 64-year-old victim was taken to the same hospital in stable condition, authorities said.

Their names were not immediately released.

The surviving victim faced no immediate charges as cops investigated the circumstances of the fight and if other people were involved.

The house where the two men were found is a single-room occupancy building for low-income and homeless people or those who have been recently released from prison, police said.
