GLENDALE, Queens (PIX11) — Police have arrested and charged a 17-year-old girl in connection with the fatal shooting of a 21-year-old man in Queens over the weekend, officials said Monday.

Jordan Paulino, 17, faces one charge of manslaughter, three charges of conspiracy and two charges of hindering prosecution, according to the NYPD.

Police were responding to a call just after 2 a.m. Sunday when they found 21-year-old Jordan Santos with a gunshot wound to the neck inside a 2002 Lexus RX300 parked on Edsall Avenue.

They transported the Queens native to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead, police said.

An NYPD spokesman said Paulino is not suspected of pulling the trigger, but is accused of being an accomplice to Santos’ death.
