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.
