A Sunset Park resident has been charged with shooting and killing his neighbor during the city’s first blizzard of the year, according to police.

The deadly shooting took place at the apartment of the alleged shooter, 32-year-old Maciej Gorecki, at Seventh Avenue and 45th Street on Saturday, January 22.

Cops say when they arrived at Gorecki’s apartment, at approximately 7:54 p.m., they found 37-year old Zdzislaw Golabek, who had sustained a gunshot wound to the head. Golabek was pronounced dead at the scene by EMS workers.

After a day of speculation that the victim had died during a game of Russian Roulette, police have ruled the incident a homicide. According to Captain Tommy Ng of the 72nd Precinct, Golabek has been charged with manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon.
