New York shooting leaves four dead – CNN


New York (CNN) – At least four people were killed and at least three wounded in a shooting at “some kind of social club” in Brooklyn, says New York Police Department spokesman Brian Magoolaghan.

Police officers and the New York Fire Department responded to calls for a shooting around 7 a.m. this Saturday at an unlicensed club on Utica Avenue in the Crown Heights section of the district.

The three survivors were taken to hospitals with injuries that were not fatal. A man was shot in the arm while another male survivor and a woman were shot in the leg, police said.

Police have no information on a suspect or motive, Magoolaghan said.

Detective Chief Dermot F. Shea told a news conference that police found evidence of gambling, with cards and dice inside the space. He said that at least 15 people were present. Two weapons were recovered.

Of the seven people shot, two were from outside New York City and the rest from Brooklyn, Shea said. They were all between 32 and 49 years old.

Patrol Chief Rodney Harrison said police have received no complaints or reports in recent years about illegal activity at the scene.
