An unresponsive Honduran immigrant man was found bizarrely wearing a dress after being shot by an unidentified perpetrator over the weekend in Queens.

Albert Carrasco Serrato, 25, was found lying in the street on 150 St. in South Jamaica, Queens, at around 3 a.m. on Saturday, July 24, after police responded to reports of gunfire in the area.

Serrato reportedly was shot in the head and torso. The victim was pronounced dead, succumbing to his fatal injuries, a short time after paramedics brought him to Jamaica Hospital for immediate treatment, according to AMNY.

The police found him on the scene after the ShotSpotter system, a variety of microphones placed around the city to help police officers identify gunshots, was triggered in the area where Serrato was found shot.

Unusually, the victim was retrieved from the scene wearing a dress, law enforcement only realizing he was a man after paramedics brought him to the hospital, reported NY Daily News.

The victim’s family has been left saddened and confused by the young Serrato's sudden death.

“This is confusing. I just want to know what’s happened. If he had a dress on, why? Who was with him? Because somebody had to be with him. He’s not the kind of person to go alone,” Pedro Carrasco Serrato, the victim’s uncle, told reporters. “I haven’t slept since Saturday.”

“The way it happened is really difficult for us to understand. Like it doesn’t match. A completely different guy,” William Serrato, the victim’s brother, told reporters.

Police are currently looking for a person of interest from footage that they have acquired from CCTV surveillance cameras in the area, according to QNS.

Currently, the person believed to have killed the victim remains unidentified and still at large.

The suspected gunman has been described to be a man with a beard who wore a black t-shirt with “Adidas” written across it in white lettering, and black pants. The person believed to have killed Serrato also reportedly had a tattoo on his forearm.
