Two men were shot and one was killed outside an Upper East Side auto body shop Monday morning.



Officials say the person seen on surveillance footage walked into NYC Auto Inc. on East 95th Street around 9:30 a.m. and shot two workers, killing one of them.

Police say the suspect walked into the car shop and after some sort of verbal altercation with a 33-year-old employee, the suspect pulled out a gun and shot him in the head and shoulder.

He then reportedly shot a 43-year-old employee in the back.

Both men were rushed to the hospital where the 33-year-old Mario Gonzalez, said to be the shop's receptionist, was pronounced dead.

43-year-old William Fuentes was said to be stable.
