BROOKLYN - Police are investigating an early morning shooting outside of a Greek diner in Brooklyn that left one man dead.

Investigators say it happened outside of the Paphos Diner on Fulton Street at around 4 a.m. Maria Santiago, a waitress at the restaurant, says the 23-year-old victim came in to get something to eat and got into an altercation with another patron.

The victim, whose identity has not been released, was pronounced dead at Brookdale Hospital.
