A 25-year-old man was shot and killed early Thursday outside a luxury hotel in New York City following a dispute, according to police.

The NYPD says two men got into an argument in front of the Dream Hotel on West 16th Street just before midnight. That's when a suspect shot the man, later identified as Byron Morales of Brooklyn, in the torso.

He was transported to Lenox Hill Hospital where he later died, police said.

The shooter fled the scene and no arrests have been made.

Police say they don't believe the victim or the shooter were guests at the hotel.

No other information was immediately available.
