    Black Friday mayhem: Queens man shot for new flat-screen TV

    An elderly Queens man was shot for his new flat-screen TV Friday - but the 47-inch set was too big for the robbers' getaway car.

    Three bandits ambushed Bentley White, 64, in his Cambria Heights home about 8:30 a.m. and shot him in the stomach, police said.

    The trigger-happy dimwits had their eye on his TV set, but apparently didn't plan ahead.

    "I saw three guys fumbling with a box outside by the lamppost," said neighbor Dudley Young, 63. "I saw them fighting over it."

    Dudley said the robbers couldn't fit the oversized box into their car - and fled without it, dumping it on 223rd St.

    Bentley had surgery and was in stable condition at Jamaica Hospital.

    The father of two had been planning a trip to his second home in his native Jamaica when the robbers pounced.

    Bentley's wife said the thieves cut their phone line and stole cell phones from the house before the clumsy getaway.

    No one has been arrested.

    The robbery was one of several shootings around the city on the day after Thanksgiving.

    In East Flatbush, Brooklyn, a 41-year-old man was fatally shot in a parking lot behind Club Nocturnal on Flatbush Ave., police said. He died at Kings County Hospital.

    In Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, a teenager was shot in the head but survived, relatives said.

    Daiquan Ellerby, 18, and his older brother, Jayson, were approached by a group on Patchen Ave. about 12:30 a.m. One shot Ellerby in the head.

    "We was just standing, and they shot," said Jayson Ellerby. "That's all - they didn't say anything. They just shot!"

    Daiquan Ellerby had surgery at Kings County Hospital.

    No one has been arrested in either shooting.
