A killer opened fire on two men in a car in Queens Sunday night, shooting one dead and leaving a second badly hurt, cops said.

The men, ages 33 and 31, were sitting in a white Audi on 114th Drive at 196th St. in St. Albans when their attacker pumped a barrage of bullets into the driver’s side window at about 10:15 p.m.

The older man, who was hit in the head and chest as he sat in the driver’s seat, died in the car, police said.

Medics took the younger man to Jamaica Hospital in critical but stable condition, with gunshots to his chest and legs.

The car remained in the middle of the street early Monday, as police searched for shell casings and video footage. A dozen people, mostly young men, gathered on the block. None would talk to a reporter.

Police were still looking for the shooter early Monday.
