JAMAICA, Queens (WABC) -- Authorities are searching for a suspect after a man was shot and killed while answering the front door at his Queens home Tuesday night.

It happened on 171st Street in Jamaica, where police say 57-year-old Mohammed Rizwan was responding to someone at the door at about 5:45 p.m. when he was fatally shot in the chest.

His family, who was upstairs at the time, heard the shot and called the police.

Rizwan died later at Jamaica Hospital.
