A man was shot dead and his girlfriend wounded following a dispute inside a Flushing karaoke bar early Friday.

The victims got into a heated argument with the suspect inside K-Show KTV, located at 38-10 138th St., just after 1 a.m., police said. The incident turned violent when the perpetrator fired off several rounds.

A 22-year-old man was shot multiple times in his torso and a 22-year-old woman was shot in her right hand. The shooter fled the scene.

EMS rushed both victims to New York-Presbyterian Hospital-Queens, where the man was pronounced dead. The woman is listed in stable condition, according to police.

Police withheld the identity of the man in order to first notify family members.

No arrest have been made as of Friday morning. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information regarding the shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA).
