NEW YORK — A man was fatally shot early Thursday outside a luxury hotel in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood, police said.

The 25-year-old victim was shot in the lower torso shortly after midnight outside the Dream Downtown Hotel on West 16th Street, a police spokesperson said.

The shooting victim was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His name was not immediately released. 

Police said the victim, who was not a guest at the hotel, was shot after getting into an argument with another man. The shooter fled in a white Jeep, police said.

The hotel is in a heavily trafficked area across Ninth Avenue from Chelsea Market and one block from the High Line. It boasts amenities including a rooftop lounge and a swimming pool with portholes looking down into the lobby.
