FLUSHING, Queens — A Queens man was being questioned by police early Tuesday after a woman seen leaving his apartment was found dead in the building late Monday night, the NYPD said.

Officers responded to the Flushing residential building just before 11:30 p.m. after a 911 call of an assault in progress in the building, located on Main Street near 56th Avenue, police said.

Upon arrival, officers found the 29-year-old woman unconscious and unresponsive in the building’s vestibule area, authorities said.
