BED-STUY - Police are investigating a deli shooting tonight in Bed-Stuy.

They say a 40-year-old man was shot this afternoon inside the store at Atlantic and Buffalo avenues. A man who says he witnessed the shooting says someone wearing a hooded sweatshirt did not enter the store and pick his target, but stuck his arm inside the open doorway and started firing.

The eyewitness says there was a heated argument in the deli minutes before the shooting occurred.
