A Bronx dad out celebrating his birthday was shot dead when his buddy bumped into someone at a Washington Heights night spot, sparking a deadly brawl, cops and the man’s devastated family said Monday.

Two other people were hurt in the shooting that cost Edy Corneil his life at about 4:50 a.m. Monday, cops said.

Corniel had gone out Sunday for a night on the town to celebrate his 28th birthday with friends, older brother, Rich Corniel, told the Daily News.

They were wrapping their revelry with a meal at Floridita, an all-night bar and restaurant on 10th Ave. near 206th St., when one of his friends accidentally knocked into another clubgoer, Corniel, 35, said.

As the man, a complete stranger, started throwing fists, one of his friends turned to a woman and grabbed a gun from her, according to Corniel, who wasn’t at the celebration but said he saw surveillance footage of the shooting afterwards.
