OLINVILLE — A 20-year-old man was shot and killed and two other men were wounded on Barker Avenue early Tuesday, the NYPD said.

The three victims were standing in front of 3320 Barker Ave., between Rosewood and Magenta streets, when a group of men approached them and started blasting, police said.

"I heard one gun shot. Then there was a pause for a couple of seconds. Then about five more shots," said Egland Powell, 62, who lives on the block.

Police raced to the scene and found one of the victims with a bullet wound to the neck.

"I saw the guy laying in the middle of the street," said Judith Blackwood, who lives in an apartment overlooking Barker Street. "He wasn't moving at all. His eyes were closed.

"I said, 'Oh, my God. He's dead,'" she added.

Emergency raced to the scene but pronounced the man dead, police said. Cops are not releasing his name until they tell notify his relatives.

A 29-year-old man was hit in the leg and another victim, a 30-year-old man, was struck twice in the back. Both victims were taken to Jacobi Medical Center in stable condition, authorities said.

No one has been arrested, police said.
