A smackdown between strippers sparked the early morning Bronx shooting that left a 45-year-old man dead, police sources said Saturday.
Murder victim Jose Feliciano, a regular at the Key Club Cabaret on Boston Road in Eastchester, was exiting the jiggle joint at 4:15 a.m. Friday when a fight broke out between two of the dancers in the parking lot, the sources said.
Feliciano ran over to defend one of the women in the fight when the other woman’s boyfriend started arguing with him, witnesses told police.
The two began brawling and Feliciano punched the other man, cops said.
Seconds later, the suspect whipped out a pistol and started blasting away, hitting Feliciano in the stomach.
Felicano ran for cover behind a car, but the callous gunman ran after him and kept firing, blasting him in the head before sprinting from the scene, cops said.
