An off-duty NYPD officer opened fire inside a Flushing karaoke bar early Monday morning.

Raymond Wong, 45, was arrested and charged with two counts of assault after he fired his gun inside Viva KTV, located at 37-20 Prince St., at around 5 a.m. Monday, police said.

Wong allegedly discharged his gun after getting into a fight with three men, according to news reports.

The dispute reportedly started over an argument about tipping the bar’s servers. Wong, a regular at the karaoke bar, confronted the men about their failure to fairly tip the female servers, the New York Post reported.

The men grew angry and began throwing punches at Wong, who then pulled out a gun and fired at least three times, according to the Post.

No one was struck by the gunfire, police said.

Wong was treated at New York Presbyterian- Queens Hospital for minor injuries, according to the New York Daily News.

The three other men involved in the fight were arrested. Charges against them are pending, police said.

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
