A wild melee near a Queens lounge early Friday left one man shot, two slashed and a fourth in custody, police said.
Police said the shooting victim was a 38-year-old bouncer who tried to break up a fight outside Chemistry Lounge, a nightclub on Liberty Ave. in South Ozone Park.
Investigators said the gunman may have fired from a car and hit the bouncer by accident.
Manager Mike Singh said the victim did not work for the club and claimed the fight started in a nearby CVS parking lot and sent bystanders running to the club for safety.
Cops made one arrest - Alberto Cabrera, 18 - who was nabbed at a nearby train station after the 1:50 a.m. incident. None of the injuries was life-threatening.
Shame. It looks like such a high class place, too. Click through the club's photo gallery. I promise, it will be the best comedy experience of your week.
