Less than two hours earlier in the borough, a 34-year-old man walked into the 103rd precinct station house in Jamaica with a gunshot wound to his torso, police said.

He told officers he was shot somewhere on Hollis Avenue, police said. He’s listed in stable condition at Jamaica Hospital, officials said.
