NEW YORK – Police say an argument between two Florida men in a New York City hotel turned fatal when one pulled out a gun and shot the other, then apparently shot himself.
The shooting occurred Thursday afternoon at the Hilton Garden Inn hotel near Kennedy International Airport in Queens.
Police say 31-year-old Brian Weiss, of Davie, was shot in the head. The shooter was identified as 47-year-old Gary Zalevsky, of Sunny Isles Beach. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
Police say the two men were in a group with others when the argument broke out. It's not clear what sparked the fight, but police believed the two were not strangers.
The others in the hotel room fled the scene after the shooting, but police tracked them down and were interviewing them.
