RICHMOND HILL — A Brooklyn man was shot multiple times early Sunday morning after a brawl at a Queens nightclub, police and reports said.

Kwasi Oltunji, 36, of Canarise, was shot several times in his torso after a dispute with clubgoers in front of Flavor Lounge, on Hillside Avenue around 3:30 a.m., police said. He was declared dead on arrival at Jamaica Hospital, police said.

Another man, 27, who had been involved in a second fight was wounded when he was attacked by a clubgoer, who slashed him with a broken bottle, the NY Post reported, and police said. That victim was in stable condition Sunday, according to cops.

Flavor Lounge, which bills itself as a nightclub and lounge, has photos of scantily clad women on its Facebook page, and advertised "Exotic Saturdays" on a recent post with drink specials, hookahs, and bottle service.

A person picking up the phone at the bar Sunday said they couldn't speak to the incident, other than to say, "I don't know, it was just a random occurance" before hanging up the phone.
