Manhattan detectives are looking for the gun-slinger who opened fire outside an Inwood nightclub early on Monday morning, killing one man and leaving another seriously injured.

Officers from the 34th Precinct responded to a 911 call regarding the shooting that occurred at about 4:12 a.m. on Sept. 20 near the Opus Lounge at 3775 10th Ave. 

Upon arriving at the scene, cops found a 35-year-old man shot multiple times in the torso, and a 42-year-old man wounded in the right forearm.

According to law enforcement sources, the victims got into a dispute with a group of three men prior to being shot. Detectives have yet to ascertain the circumstances that led up to the initial argument.

The group was seen fleeing following the gunfire inside a white sedan, sources said.

EMS rushed the 35-year-old man to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later. Police have withheld his identity, pending family notification.

Paramedics brought the 42-year-old man to Harlem Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition.

So far, no arrests have been made in the ongoing investigation.

Anyone with information regarding the shooting can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA). You can also submit tips online at crimestoppers.nypdonline.org, or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
