At least 4 dead in NYC shooting

Brooklyn shooting

The location at 74 Utica Ave is listed as permanently closed on Google but cops said it was being used for unlicensed gambling, indicated by cards and other items discovered.

The ages of the deceased and those shot range in age between 32 and 49 years old.

Four people were killed and several were injured in a shooting in Brooklyn early Saturday morning.

Victims of the incident were transported to Kings County Hospital and Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

No one has been arrested over the shooting, which took place in Brooklyn, and the motive and exact circumstances are not known, according to police.

According to NBC New York, as of now, authorities are investigating whether or not the shooting had any connection to a hip hop festival taking place across the city on Saturday.

Earlier reports had said as many as five people were wounded.

Police said that there have been no complaints in the last few years at this site in the Crown Heights neighborhood.

Investigators say there is nothing to indicate that this shooting was gang related.

FDNY officials initially said there were nine people shot, but police later said an eighth person was injured while trying to flee the location.

This is a developing story.
