A Rockaway man was shot and killed just before 1 a.m. on Sunday when two men who police say were waiting for him fired one shot into his head.

According to police, Leonard Jackson, 33, of Rockaway Beach, was entering his vehicle at Beach 100 Street and Beach Channel Drive when two unidentified men got out of a white Monte Carlo. The two men approached him and one pulled a handgun, according to police, shooting Jackson without comment.

They then got back into their car and fled the scene.

Jackson was transported to Peninsula Hospital Center by EMS. He was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

Detectives at the 100 Squad say they have no motive for the shooting as yet. The investigation is ongoing.
