CONEY ISLAND, Brooklyn — A man was killed and two others were wounded in a shooting on a Coney Island street early Wednesday, according to the NYPD.

Police said the three men were shot when gunfire erupted just before 2 a.m. on West 16th Street, between Hart Place and Neptune Avenue.

Responding officers found the first victim, 25, with a gunshot wound to the chest. EMS responded and rushed him to a nearby hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, authorities said.

The second victim, 37, sustained gunshot wounds to the buttocks and right ankle, police said.

And cops said the third victim, 26, was discovered with a gunshot wound to the right forearm.
