By Rupert Deedes

Two Oyster Bay men were arrested last week by the FBI, for the February 12, 2019 murder of Xin Gu, a 31-year-old Queens man, over a business dispute.


Arrested are Qing Ming Yu, also known as “Allen Yu,” of Oyster Bay; and You You, also known as “Eddie,” of Plainview. Two other Defendants were arrested , Zhe Zhang, also known as “Zack,” of Arcadia, California, and Antony Abreu, also known as “Anthony,” of Queens.

“The Defendants callously used gun violence to resolve a business dispute, reducing the value of a man’s life to a dollar figure, and bringing trauma and mourning to the community,” stated the United States Attorney.


Between 2015 and 2018, Xin Gu, the murder victim, worked for Qing Ming Yu’s property development company in Manhattan. In 2018, Xin Gu left the company and formed his own property development company. Xin Gu’s departure was followed by several clients and employees who also cut ties with Qing Ming Yu’s company, which then closed at the end of 2018.


Qing Ming Yu. became enraged at Xin Gu’s "disloyalty," and hired his nephew You You to kill Xin Gu in exchange for payment. You You in turn allegedly hired Zhang and Antony Abreu to carry out the murder.


On the evening of February 11, 2019, Xin Gu’s new company hosted a celebration of the Lunar New Year at a Chinese karaoke bar in Queens. The party continued into the following morning, with the hit taking place in the early morning, according to the FBI. You You acted as a lookout, Zhe Zhang serving as the getaway driver, and Abreu acted as the "trigger man" shooting Xin Gu multiple times, and killing him.


Qing Ming Yu a/k/a "Allen Yu" lives in a $2.5 million mansion located at 156 Cove Road, in Oyster Bay.

If convicted, each defendant faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison, or the death penalty.
