An unidentified Far Rockaway man was shot once in the thigh after an altercation at a house party turned nasty, police sources say.

According to those sources, a group of locals were attending a house party at 11-23 McBride Street in Far Rockaway when an altercation between two groups of men broke out.

The argument spilled out onto the street in front of the McBride Street address when an unidentified man pulled a gun.

The victim attempted to get away, police say, but was shot once in the thigh, scattering all the other participants.

The shooter fled the scene and detectives from the 101 Squad are still looking for him.

The victim was transported to the Jamaica Hospital Trauma Center, where he was reportedly treated for his injuries and released.

Police say that the man could not identify the shooter.
