    Police say a 24-year-old Queens man was shot and killed in a dispute over a parking spot Monday evening. 

    The victim, Darrell Lynch of Jamaica, got into a fight with another man over a parking spot on 113th Avenue at about 7:30 p.m., according to police. The gunman shot Lynch in the leg and ran away.

    The victim was taken to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 

    The Daily News reports that Lynch's 55-year-old mother was with him during the altercation, and Lynch pulled out his own gun during the fight but dropped it. His mother picked it up and started shooting at the suspect. 

    No one was hit when she opened fire. 

    The two got back into their SUV and tried to drive away, but Lynch lost consciousness and crashed into two parked cars. 

    Police are searching for the gunman.
