At Least Four Dead In NYC Shooting

Four people have been killed and multiple are injured after a shooting inside an illegal gambling location in NY on Saturday.

Shea said the victims range in age from 32 to 49 years old.

Police say the shooting took place in the Crown Heights neighbourhood of Brooklyn at an address that corresponds to a private social club on an online map of the street. Shea said investigators collected "cards" and "dice" from the scene.

The New York Police Department received calls of shots fired at 6:55 a.m., spokesman Detective Adam Navarro told the New York Times.

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.

The victims' names have not been released but police say two of the victims are from out of state.

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

Four men were pronounced dead at the scene, he said, and two men and a woman were left with gunshot wounds. There have been no prior complaints of gambling at the location, they say.

While no arrests have been made, Shea said several people were being questioned over the shooting.

The preliminary investigation shows this incident was not gang-related. Check back for updates.
