Killed and 3 Injured in Brooklyn Shooting

Police officers and the Fire Department of NY responded to calls of a shooting about 7 a.m. Saturday at the unlicensed club on Utica Avenue in the Crown Heights section of the borough.

Four people were killed and three others injured in an early Saturday morning shooting in Brooklyn, police said. Two may have lived out of state and the rest were from neighbourhoods throughout Brooklyn.

Police say four people were killed and three others wounded inside an illegal gambling site in Brooklyn. Shea said there was "evidence of gambling" including cards and dice inside.

The officer estimated that at least 15 people were inside when the incident occurred at least 15 shots were fired, but he stressed police only have preliminary information. They were all between the ages of 32 and 49. Officers had not previously received any complaints about the location, Chief of Patrol Rodney Harrison said.

An eighth person sustained a minor leg injury trying to get away from the shooting, which happened in the Crown Heights area of Brooklyn.

The four men were pronounced dead at the scene by emergency workers, the report said.

But police couldn't immediately describe the type of building in which the shooting took place. He said there's "nothing to indicate" it's gang-related.

According to police, the gunfire broke out shortly before 7 a.m. inside 74 Utica Ave., a business called Triple A Aces that advertises itself as a "private & social rental space".

No arrests have been made.

Crime-scene tape surrounded the building Saturday morning and investigators in white jumpsuits could be seen going in and out.
