An off-duty NYPD sergeant involved in an early-morning brawl at a Queens karaoke bar allegedly opened fire after three patrons refused to tip a server.
Violence broke out inside the Viva KTV karaoke bar on Prince Street in the Flushing neighborhood at around 5am on Monday.
A female staffer at the establishment, who also may have been involved in sex work, reportedly complained that she was denied a tip by a trio of male guests.
Sgt Raymond Wong, who is assigned to the 94th Precinct in Brooklyn, was in the bar and intervened on the server's behalf, according to the New York Daily News citing unnamed police sources.
Wong was off-duty at the time. It is unclear whether he was working security in the bar, or was just a patron.
