Paramedics rushed the mortally-wounded Simpson to Jamaica Hospital but doctors couldn’t save him.
Simpson, who worked with his brother at the Strickly Skillz Barbershop in Hollis, died just before 1 a.m., sources said.
“That was like my other half,” said the victim’s brother Samuel Simpson, 35. “Everybody says we looked alike. They always called us twins.”
Over the last month, robbers have targeted several people leaving the Breezes Island Grill, a police source said.
