NEW YORK – Investigators on Wednesday questioned a bouncer from a Manhattan nightspot who was suspected in a shooting outside the lounge in which one man was killed and three people were wounded.
Police said the bouncer ran away after the violence late Tuesday outside Opus 22 in the Chelsea neighborhood.
The 30-year-old man later turned himself in for questioning, said Sgt. Steve Rodriguez.
No charges had been filed in the case as of Wednesday morning.
A 25-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. Three wounded men, all in their 20s, were taken to hospitals and one was in critical condition, police said. The injuries of the two others were not believed to be life-threatening and they were listed in stable condition.
The shooting occurred after a dispute involving the bouncer and the four men, police said.
Witnesses said the argument began when members of a party inside refused to leave to allow a second party to begin. The fracas moved outside, where shots were fired.
According to its Web site, Opus 22 hosts performances by disc jockeys playing Latin, hip-hop and R&B music, among other styles. The area surrounding the lounge features trendy galleries and bars in converted warehouses and factories.
