The New York Post: Muslim cleric gunned down after prayers at New York City mosque

A imam and a friend heading home from prayers at a Queens mosque were gunned down Saturday in what authorities are investigating as a hate crime.

One of the men was killed in the 2 p.m. shooting near 79th Street and Liberty Avenue in Ozone Park, police said.

One victim was shot in the head, while the other took a bullet to the chest, sources said. They were taken to Jamaica Hospital, where the survivor was said to be in critical condition. Authorities didn’t immediately identify the victims, or say which was killed.

Thara Uddin, 60, was praying with the imam at Al Furqan Jame Masjid on 77th Street and Glenmore Avenue before the shooting.
