The Queens district attorney says a meeting in a hotel lobby near John F. Kennedy International Airport Thursday resulted in one man shooting another man and then killing himself.
Sources say six people were gathered in the lobby of the Hilton Garden in Jamaica around 12:30 p.m., when two of the men began arguing.
When police arrived they found Brian Weiss, 31, of Florida with a gunshot wound to the head and Gary Zalevsky, 47, of Florida with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to head.
Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
It's not clear what started the fight, but police believe the two men were not strangers.
Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said the shooting seemed to be a murder-suicide.
"There apparently was some sort of a meeting ongoing but as I just said to your colleagues, I'm not really prepared to speculate at this moment as to what transpired," said Brown.
The other four people present in the meeting left the scene but were quickly taken into custody by police in the 106th precinct for questioning.
At least one of them was released Thursday night, but he refused to comment.
Guests who were inside the hotel at the time of the shooting tell NY1 they had no idea what was going on.
"They sent us out the back door because we couldn't come out the front," said one guest. It's scary."
"I'm not comfortable going into the hotel if there's a shooting going on in there,"s aid another guest.
So far, no one has been arrested in connection with the shooting.
An investigation is ongoing.
