    A shooting outside a Brooklyn lounge early Monday morning left one man dead and a woman wounded.

    Police say the shots were fired outside the Tracks Lounge on Ralph Avenue in Canarsie at around 2:15 a.m.

    A 31-year-old man who was shot several times in the torso died at Kings County Hospital and a 26-year-old woman shot in the leg is in stable condition at Brookdale University Hospital.

    Authorities are still investigating the circumstances around the shooting, but NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly said it appeared the shots were fired after a dispute inside the lounge. It was still unclear whether the victims were involved in the dispute, Kelly said.

    There is no description yet of a suspect and the identities of the victims have not been released.
