One person was killed and four others were wounded in a shooting Sunday night near City College, the police said.

The shooting took place around 11:15 p.m. in front of Wally’s Deli on Broadway near the corner of 135th Street. A person approached a group of people standing in front of the store and shot one man in the head, killing him instantly, the police said. The suspect began running away, but then turned around and fired more shots, striking four bystanders as they fled in the opposite direction, according to the police.

The police said officials had not identified the victim early Monday morning.

The bystanders were taken to hospitals with injuries that were not life-threatening, the police said. Two men were taken to Harlem Hospital: a 24-year-old man who was shot in his right arm and ankle, and a 22-year-old man who was shot in the back and the leg, according to officials. Two 21-year-old women with graze wounds were taken to St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital.

Pablo Perez, the overnight attendant at 3357 Laundry, a few doors up Broadway from the deli, said he had just shown up for work when gunfire erupted at 11:15 p.m. He said he heard about 10 shots fired in rapid succession, and that he and customers in the store ducked and ran to a back room, from where he called the police.

When the shooting stopped, Mr. Perez said, someone screamed that there was a body in front of the laundromat. When he went to look, he saw that a man had been shot in the leg and was bleeding from the stomach, but that the man was conscious, Mr. Perez said.He said a woman emerged from a taxi, took off the man's shirt, pulled down his pants, and applied pressure to his wounds to slow the bleeding.

Another man was lying motionless in front of Wally’s Deli at 3345 Broadway. The man was not moving and there was blood everywhere, Mr. Perez said.

“I’ve never seen blood like that or heard shots like that,” he said.

On Sunday night, the police had roped off sections of Broadway between 135th Street and 137th Street as investigators canvassed the area looking for evidence.

There were no arrests early Monday morning, the police said.

Mr. Perez said the police were looking at surveillance video from security cameras at the laundromat that face the street.

He added that he has worked at the laundromat for two years and lived in the neighborhood for nine years. He said he was surprised by the violence.

“In the past, where I used to live, we heard gunshots all night and we couldn’t sleep,” he said. “But never here.”
