A man was shot dead and another injured in a shooting that took place in Woodhaven early this morning.

A 19-year-old and a 21-year-old were both shot at the corner of 91st Street and 85th Avenue, near Forest Park, at approximately 4:24 a.m., police said.

Officers responded to a 911 call and found both men with gunshot wounds. The 19-year-old was shot in the left arm, while the 21-year-old was shot in the torso and head, police said.

EMS transported the younger victim to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in serious condition and rushed the 21-year-old to Elmhurst Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
