One man was fatally blasted in the face and another man was wounded during a bizarre Brooklyn shooting, police said Saturday.

Cops responding to a report of gunshots near the corner of Stanley Ave. and Crescent St. in East New York around 11 p.m. Friday found the two victims sprawled out on the street.

One of them, 37, was bleeding from gunshot wounds to the chest and groin, police said. The other man, who couldn’t immediately be identified, had been shot in the face and chest.

The victim hit in the groin had a gun on him, according to cops.

Both were rushed to Brookdale University Medical Center, where the man shot in the face died. Cops were trying to identify him Saturday.

The other victim was expected to survive, cops said. As he recuperated, he was taken into police custody and was expected to be arrested on gun possession charges.

Detectives were trying to determine if the suspect with the gun had killed the other man or if the two shot each other in a fight over the weapon.

They had been arguing before the shooting, police were told.

Cops on Saturday were scouring the area for surveillance footage of the incident.
