A Brooklyn man was shot to death as a result of a parking dispute on a St. Albans street early Thursday morning, according to law enforcement sources.

Officers from 113th Precinct responded to a 911 call about the shooting, which occurred at at about 1:34 a.m. on Aug. 26, and found Parris Spencer, 23, of East 95th Street in Brooklyn shot multiple times in the head and torso. He was unconscious and unresponsive by the time police arrived; responding EMS units subsequently pronounced him dead.

Based on a preliminary investigation, police learned that Spencer had been involved in a dispute with another man over a parking spot at the location.

The words turned violent, cops said, when the unknown perpetrator pulled out a firearm and shot Spencer multiple times.

The gunman then fled the scene inside a white, four-door Mercedes-Benz sedan, authorities reported.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
