16 Year Old Shot Dead
Cops Looking For Jermel Hardy

Luis Rivera, 16, of Far Rockaway was shot to death in broad daylight Sunday afternoon in an area behind 20-06 Seagirt boulevard in the Wavecrest Gardens Apartment Complex.

The police investigation has led to a search for Jermel Hardy, 25, of 20-06 Seagirt boulevard in connection with the shooting.

At approximately 4 p.m. Sunday, October 15, 2000 police from the 101 Precinct were called to the Seagirt boulevard homicide scene, where they found Rivera’s body riddled with 9 mm gunshot wounds. According to police at the 101 Precinct, Rivera was shot numerous times in the head, back, and legs. Police are working on the theory that the homicide was the result of an earlier dispute between Hardy and the victim. Rivera was found to be armed with a handgun when police discovered his body.

Anyone with information about Hardy’s whereabouts is asked to call Detective Dolan at the 101 Precinct Detective Squad at 868-3428.
