One killed, five hurt by vehicle in brawl outside NY bar

Manhunt in NYC after car rams into people, several reported killed & injured

A driver plowed a vehicle into half a dozen people during a fight over a parking spot outside a hookah bar in the New York City borough of Queens in the early hours of Sunday morning, killing one and injuring the others before fleeing, police said.

Authorities say it happened around 4:30 a.m. Sunday outside a hookah lounge in Queens.

Police said the driver struck at least six people, one of whom was pronounced dead at the scene.

A New York Police Department detective said the driver targeted the victims in Queens, but terrorism is not suspected. "Suddenly I just see the white auto driving through the sidewalk". Apart from the one person killed immediately and the one in critical condition at a hospital, the other four are in stable condition.


Two people were also stabbed in the preceding scuffle, according to police.

Ozzie Rogers, who witnessed the incident, told the New York Daily News that he saw the vehicle go at least 50 miles per hour on the sidewalk. Another is in stable condition. A search was underway for a white sedan.

Witnesses told WCBS-TV that a group of people was leaving the bar when they saw a man beating up another man on the sidewalk.
