Two men were shot in the head and found dead just after midnight on Christmas in front of the apartment of one of the victims in the Jamaica section of Queens. Police are still investigating and have not revealed any motive behind the shootings of 42-year-old Andre Stokes and 34-year-old Jamel Griffin, both of whom the Daily News notes "had troubled pasts with numerous arrests." Griffin left behind a young son and was expecting another. Murders and shootings have risen in Jamaica this year. Griffin's grandmother, who previously lost a 15-year-old son to a shooting said, "There is nothing worse than losing your child to a gun."
