MIDTOWN MANHATTAN — Three men were wounded when gunfire erupted Tuesday night on a Midtown Manhattan street, according to police.
It happened at about 10:38 p.m. on West 38th Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues, just blocks from Bryant Park, authorities said.
Police said a dispute started inside the location during some kind of music event with over 130 people in attendance.
The dispute spilled out onto the sidewalk and that’s when shots were fired, authorities said.
Three men were wounded and rushed to an area hospital, officials said.
A 24-year-old man shot in the torso was initially listed in serious condition and underwent surgery overnight, police said. His condition was later upgraded to “stable” Wednesday morning, according to the NYPD.
Authorities said a 19-year-old man was shot in the leg, while a 27-year-old man was shot in the stomach. Both were considered “stable” by police.
Two male suspects were taken into police custody, according to an NPYD spokesperson.
Police said two firearms were also recovered from the scene.
The dozens of people at the music event were safely removed and were being interviewed, officials said Wednesday morning.
