Detectives are hunting a gunman who shot three people at an Inwood restaurant Monday, killing a Bronx dad and wounding two others, authorities said.

Edy Corneil was fatally shot about 4:50 a.m. Monday at Floridita, a 24-hour eatery on 206th Street, where he had been celebrating his 28th birthday with friends.

Corneil’s killing was the result of an argument between his friend and another patron. The gunman also wounded two other victims, ages 29 and 58, before fleeing, authorities said.

The two surviving victims are expected to recover.

Anyone with information is asked to call NYPD Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
