An argument on a Queens Village street on Friday night exploded into violence when one of the men pulled out a handgun and allegedly blasted another man in his groin area, according to authorities.

Police from the 105th Precinct in Queens Village reported that the shooting incident began in front of 215-22 99th Ave. at around 10:18 on the night of May 5, when the 25-year-old victim began shouting at another man.
