A fight that broke out in front of a Long Island City hotel early Monday escalated and led to a shoot out on the street, according to police.

A group of men got into a physical altercation outside the Fairfield Inn & Suites hotel, located at 27-29 40th Road, at around 6:05 a.m. before one of them left and came back with a gun and fired shots.

The shooter, who didn’t injure anyone, then fled on foot toward Northern Boulevard and 39th Avenue, where individuals inside a white Mercedes Benz caught up with him and began shooting at him. The original shooter then fired back.
