NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Police say two men were shot after they got into an argument with two other men over a double-parked car in Queens.

It happened just after 8 p.m. Thursday on Austin Street in Kew Gardens.

Witnesses said 25-year-old Roberto Adanes and his 30-year-old brother were sitting in a triangle park in front of their apartment building when they began exchanging words with two men in a white van.

The van driver apparently went up the block and came back with a gun.

“I heard like almost four or five shots,” one man said. “I thought it was just a firecracker until I heard the screaming.”

Roberto was pronounced dead at Jamaica Hospital. His brother, who was shot in the head, is clinging to life.

Police say the suspects fled in a van bearing Connecticut plates. The investigation is still ongoing.
