A man was shot and killed in Flushing by another man, who then drove off on a motorcycle Wednesday night, police say. 

The 50-year-old victim and the suspect were seen talking near 35th Avenue and Farrington Street just before a gun was pulled around 11:45 p.m., according to police.

The suspect shot the man once in his forehead, above his left eye, according to police. Despite emergency responders’ efforts to save him, he was pronounced dead at NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens.

Police said the suspect took off down 35th Avenue on a motorcycle.

A man said he heard the gunshots, but wasn't sure what they were at first.

"I heard a couple of loud boom noises and I just thought it was fireworks, so I didn't really think much of it," the man said. 

There was a heavy police presence on 35th Avenue Thursday morning as police investigated. 

No arrests have been reported. Police said an investigation is ongoing.
