4 killed, 3 wounded in shooting at illegal gambling site in Brooklyn

FILE No one has been arrested over the shooting which took place in Brooklyn and the motive and exact circumstances are not known a New York police official told AFP

An early morning shooting in Brooklyn on Saturday left four men dead and three other people injured, a spokesman for the New York Police Department said. They were said to be between the ages of 32 and 49.

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.

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 six men and one woman were shot just before 7 a.m. inside a building in the Crown Heights neighbourhood of Brooklyn.


Chief of Detectives Dermot F. Shea said at a press conference several hours after the shooting that at least two firearms - a 9mm handgun and a revolver - were recovered from the scene. He said two guns were found at the scene and more could potentially be found.

While four gunshot victims were dead on arrival, the three additional people who were shot suffered non-life-threatening wounds. There have been no prior complaints of gambling at the location, they say. He said there was no indication that it was a gang-related incident.

No arrests have been made, and police do not know the motive for the shootings, Shea said. He said that a preliminary investigation revealed that at least 15 shots were fired.
