An irate hit-and-run driver mowed down at least four people, killing one, after a knife fight outside a Queens hookah bar Sunday morning, according to police and witness. One person was killed, and five others injured, one of them critically.

The violent altercation started around 4:30 a.m. outside a hookah lounge in Queens, when the driver of a white Hyundai sedan got out of his vehicle and stabbed two other people, New York Police Department Assistant Chief David Barrere said.

A New York City detective said the incident wasn't terror-related. The other people struck and the two people stabbed were in stable condition. They added that the suspected attacker fled the scene; the search for the driver is ongoing.

The SPD's top brass will then present their recommendation to party rank and file during their congress from Thursday. Schulz fronts a party which is split evenly down the middle on what he should do next.

The driver then got back in the auto and drove onto the sidewalk about half a block away, striking six victims. The third was hospitalized in stable condition. Police are looking for a white sedan in connection with the crash.

Police still were sorting out the details, but authorities say there was a dispute before the man drove into the people.
