This is the moment a gunman opens fire during a heated argument in the middle of a Queens street — injuring three people, including one victim who was blasted six times.

A clip released by the NYPD early Thursday shows the suspect firing off multiple rounds, around 1:30 a.m. Sunday on Beach Channel Drive near Beach 38th Street in Edgemere.

After the gunfire, the footage shows a group standing on the sidewalk suddenly breaking into a sprint — and one person holding what appears to be a coffee cup rolling on the ground. 

A 32-year-old man was shot six times — in his left leg, left foot, right foot, groin, right hand and buttocks — and was taken to St. John’s Hospital by private means, cops said.

A 35-year-old man was shot once in the chest and taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, initially in critical condition, but he too has since stabilized, cops said.

A 36-year-old man also went to Jamaica Hospital by private means with a gunshot wound to his left shin. He was listed in stable condition. 

Cops had no additional information on the squabble that preceded the shooting.

Prior to the gunplay, the victims had just left a party at another location, but that did not appear to be related to the shooting, cops said. 

Cops were still looking for the suspect Thursday morning.
