The deadly shooting on Utica Avenue in Brooklyn happened at an illegal gambling location, according to the New York Police Department (NYPD).
The four victims and those injured were identified as between the ages of 32 and 49, Chief of Detectives Dermot F. Shea told the media Saturday morning. The deceased were all men.
“We have some individuals back at the 77th precinct and we’re trying to piece together exactly what transpired,” Shea said, adding that police are continuing to investigate, are canvassing the neighborhood, and are reviewing body cam footage.
There were multiple shots fired inside the location and two firearms, a 9mm and revolver, were recovered, Shea said. Three other people were shot and suffered non-life threatening injuries, he added.
Police also found dice and playing cards inside the location.
