On Saturday July 11, Nassau County Police detectives responded to a call regarding a man who was found laying on the ground in the vicinity of Northern Boulevard and Museum Drive in Roslyn.
Police later identified the victim on Tuesday, July 14 as Jarol Hernandez, 17 of Hempstead. According to the police report, Hernandez had suffered multiple gun-shot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene by a Nassau County Police Medic.
Charles Riley, director of the Nassau Museum stated that the investigation into the murder of Hernandez hasn’t had any affect on the Museum hours or its operation.
