BROOKLYN — A man was killed and another wounded in a drive-by shooting outside a party in Canarsie early Sunday morning, police said.

The bloodshed comes just days after six people were shot in a drive-by in Brownsville, including a 2-year-old girl and 13-year-old boy.

According to sources, the victims, 30 and 31, left a party on East 84th Street and Flatlands Avenue just before 2:40 a.m. when two men pulled up in a car.

One of the men in the car took out a gun and fired twice, hitting both victims.

Both men, who were shot to the chest, were rushed to Brookdale Hospital, where the younger man was pronounced dead.

The older man was in stable condition.

It was not clear what sparked the violence or if the victims, whose identities were not released, were the intended targets of the shooting.
