Two men were shot inside a College Point parking lot on Saturday morning in a case very similar to a homicide at the same location back in October 2018, cops said.

Officers from the 109th Precinct responded to a 911 call about a shooting at the corner of Ulmer Street and the Whitestone Expressway service road at 4 a.m. on Jan. 19.

Upon arriving at the scene, officers found three men inside of a black Hyundai Sonata in the College Point Multiplex parking lot. The driver, a 28-year-old man, was shot in the head, and a 37-year-old man in the front passenger seat had been shot in the back. A 36-year-old man sitting in the back was found uninjured.

During a preliminary investigation, police learned that the three men had been involved in a dispute with unknown individuals at a local nightclub earlier in the morning.

The men got into the Hyundai Sonata and drove away from the club. Upon arriving at the College Point Multiplex parking lot, sources said, an unidentified shooter in an unknown vehicle drove up alongside the Hyundai, fired multiple shots, then fled the scene.

EMS units rushed the two wounded men to NewYork-Presbyterian Queens hospital in Flushing. The 28-year-old man was listed in critical condition, and the 37-year-old man is in stable condition.

No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing, police said.

The case is eerily similar to a deadly shooting at the multiplex parking lot early on the morning of Oct. 1, 2018.  Jaquan Campbell, 25, of Brooklyn was gunned down shortly after he was involved in a dispute at the Angels Strip Club in Flushing. Two suspects were arrested in Florida weeks later, and a third individual connected to the shooting was picked up in November.
