NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The search continued Sunday afternoon for the assailant in the shooting death of a teenager in Far Rockaway, Queens.

Police said Trevor Rudd was found shot to death in a second floor stairwell at an apartment building on Beach Channel Drive on Saturday afternoon.

He was shot multiple times in his torso and pronounced dead on the scene, police said.

Police earlier said a 31-year-old man was taken into custody as a “person of interest” in the shooting.

But police told 1010 WINS early Sunday afternoon that the man was found near the scene and was in possession of a gun, but was not involved in the shooting that killed Rudd.

There was no one in custody in Rudd’s death Sunday afternoon.

There was no word Sunday morning on a motive for the shooting.
