By Kelsey Durham

Four people were wounded, two critically, after a dispute between two men led to a shooting in the Baisley Park section of Jamaica early Sunday morning, the NYPD said.

Police said a 27-year-old man was in a silver Audi with the unidentified suspect when the two individuals got into a dispute just before 6 a.m. Aug. 18. The suspect shot the man five times, including in the chest and back, and injured three others outside the car while firing before driving off, the NYPD said. The incident occurred at 152-38 118th Ave.

The three other victims included a 26-year-old man shot in the chest and hip, a 24-year-old woman shot in the left hip and a 19-year-old man who suffered a graze wound to his right hand. All the victims were taken to Jamaica Hospital, where the 27-year-old and 26-year-old men were in critical condition as of Monday morning, police said.

The 24-year-old woman was listed in stable condition, and the 19-year-old was treated and released Sunday morning, according to the NYPD.

Police said they were investigating the incident and were still trying to identify a suspect.
