A Ravenswood man was killed in broad daylight in South Jamaica Monday afternoon.

Police said Darius Guillebeaux, 47, was fatally shot at around 1 p.m. near the intersection of 148th Street and Rockaway Boulevard.

Emergency medical responders transported him to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Guillebeaux had been shot multiple times to the head and chest, the NYPD said.

Two men confronted Guillebeaux prior to the shooting, the NY Daily News reported. It was unclear what the dispute was about, and no arrests had been made as of Tuesday, according to the report and authorities.

Police said that the investigation into Guillebeaux’s murder was ongoing.

Guillebeaux lived in the Ravenswood Housing Development, according to the NYPD.

He had previously served three terms in New York prisons, two for selling drugs and one for robbery, Department of Corrections records show.

Guillebeaux was most recently released from prison on parole in 2017.

Attorney General releases body-cam footage in probe of MTA police shooting in Jamaica

New York Attorney General Letitia James on Thursday released police body-worn camera footage that her office obtained as part of the ongoing investigation into the shooting death of 52-year-old Bashe McDaniel, who died on Dec. 29, 2023, following an encounter with members of the Metropolitan Transit Authority, (MTA) Police in Jamaica. The probe by her Office of Special Investigation is mandated under state law.

On the night of Dec. 29, two MTA officers were searching for an individual on Sutphin Boulevard following a report of an alleged sexual assault at the Jamaica LIRR/AirTrain station a block away. The officers spotted McDaniel, who appeared to be wearing the same clothing that was described in the report. As the officers were attempting to handcuff McDaniel, they could be heard ordering him to give them his hands. When he failed to comply, one of the officers used a Taser several times. As McDaniel shrieked and continued to struggle, he allegedly fired a semi-automatic firearm, according to the AG’s office. The two officers discharged their service weapons multiple times in response, striking McDaniel once in the head.
