A 28-year-old man was fatally shot Saturday morning in Brownsville.

Police say it happened just before 5 a.m. next to a bodega on Rockaway Avenue between Livonia and Dumont avenues, in the lobby of the next door apartment building.

It started off as some sort of argument but it is unclear what the two men were fighting about.

Investigators say when they arrived at the scene, the victim was already dead.

News 12 is told a man wearing a black jacket and blue jeans ran away just after shooting the victim in the abdomen.

The name of the victim has not yet been released.

Police are investigating.
