Just a week after Lipa Breuer, 64, was found seriously wounded on a street he died at a local hospital.
Breuer was a volunteer for a charity named “Shabbat Pekelach,” which distributed food for the needy on a weekly basis.
Breuer was reported missing by his family, and he was later found unconscious and beaten on a street.
He was transported to a Queens hospital in serious condition.
Hospital officials said that Breuer was admitted into the hospital about an hour after leaving the charity organization’s storage facility with his car.
Police said that Breuer was robbed and shot while waiting for a traffic light to change.
The suspect put the victim in the back of the car and drove off to Queens. When they arrived in Queens, the suspect dumped Breuer on the street. The suspect later abandoned the vehicle and fled with the food boxes.
Police are looking for the suspect, and so far, no arrests have been made.
Breuer was the manager of a large Satmar girls school named Bracha Sima, in Williamsburg for many years.
He also managed the popular Bracha Sima wedding hall. Four years ago, he retired and began volunteer work for several charity organizations.
