Detectives are seeking clues and suspects behind an early-morning shooting in Canarsie on Saturday that claimed a 29-year-old man’s life.

Officers from the 69th Precinct responded to a 911 call about the shooting outside of Richard’s Lounge, at 9402 Avenue L at about 2:34 am on Nov. 7.

Upon arriving at the scene, they found Jahdane Olivierre, 29, of East 87th Street, with multiple gunshot wounds to his torso and leg.

Paramedics rushed Olivierre to Brookdale Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

At this point in the investigation, police have not yet established a possible motive for the murder — or a description of the gunman. 

Sources familiar with the case said witnesses at the scene were being “uncooperative” with detectives.

The 69th Precinct Detective Squad and the Brooklyn South Homicide Squad are conducting the ongoing investigation.
