What started out as an apparent dispute inside an Elmhurst nightclub came to a bloody end with one of the alleged combatants shot multiple times on a nearby street corner early Monday morning, police said.
According to authorities, officers from the 110th Precinct found the bullet-riddled 33-year-old man at the corner of Roosevelt Avenue and Elbertson Street at about 4:40 a.m. Paramedics rushed the victim to a local hospital in critical condition.
Based on information obtained during a preliminary investigation, police determined that the victim was allegedly involved in an argument that began inside a nearby bar. Moments later, an unknown assailant allegedly shot him.
The investigation is ongoing.
Anyone with information regarding the shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS, visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
