BROOKLYN -

A man was killed in a shooting on the border of Brooklyn and Queens early Sunday morning.

The incident happened at a traffic light on North Conduit Avenue in Queens, just off the Van Wyck Expressway. 

Police say two unidentified men got out of a black SUV at the light, walked over to another car and began shooting.

A 51-year-old man was fatally struck in the head. Two other passengers - a man and a woman, both 50 years old - were grazed by bullets.

Those two victims then drove to the 69 Precinct for help, according to police.

EMS crews rushed the victims to Brookdale Hospital, but the 51-year-old man could not be saved.

News 12 is told at least one of the victims is from Brooklyn and one is from South Carolina.

It's unclear what prompted the shooting.
