The police have released video footage that captures a fatal shooting that took place outside a St. Albans bar Monday night.
The video shows two men coming out Cozy Corner Sports Bar, located at 194-01 Linden Blvd., at around 11:30 p.m. with one of them carrying a gun. The pair then cross the street.
Moments later, the man with the gun turns around in the middle of the street and starts firing multiple shots toward the entrance of the bar.
The gunman allegedly shot Diquan Orr, 33, in the chest, killing him.
The suspect, cops say, got into a dispute with Orr moments prior to the incident. It is unclear what sparked the argument.
