A 26-year-old man was fatally shot in front of an Astoria hookah bar early Monday after getting into a fight with the suspect inside, police said.
The fight started by the Crystal Lounge on Steinway Street just before 4 a.m., police said. That is when Charles Williams, from East New York, was shot in the street.
The suspect then drove off in a white BMW, police said.
The victim was taken to Astoria General Hospital, but was pronounced dead there.
It was not immediately clear what the fight was about.
