Four dead and three injured in New York shooting

Four people were killed and three others seriously wounded in a shooting in Brooklyn.

The NYPD say officers responding to an emergency call shortly before 7am Saturday morning found the deceased, all males, along with a woman and two other men suffering non-life threatening injuries.

Police say the shooting took place in the Crown Heights neighbourhood, which has reportedly struggled with gang violence, at a premises believed to double as an after-hours club.

The building is two blocks from a police station.

Crime-scene tape surrounded the premises Saturday morning and investigators in white jumpsuits could be seen going in and out.

No arrests have been made and there is no known motive at this stage, according to preliminary reports.

This is a breaking story which will be updated shortly.
