New York (WAB NEWS) – At least four people were killed and at least three were injured in a shooting at "some kind of social club" in Brooklyn, says New York Police Department spokesman Brian Magoolaghan.

Police officers and the New York Fire Department responded to calls from a shooting around 7 a.m. this Saturday at an unlicensed club on Utica Avenue, in the Crown Heights section of the district.


The three survivors were taken to hospitals with injuries that were not fatal. A man was shot in the arm while another male survivor and a woman were shot in the leg, police said.

Police do not have information about a suspect or motive, Magoolaghan said.

Detective chief Dermot F. Shea told a news conference that police found evidence of the game, with letters and dice inside the space. He said at least 15 people were present. Two weapons were recovered.

Of the seven people shot, two were from outside of New York City and the rest of Brooklyn, Shea said. All were between 32 and 49 years old.

Patrol chief Rodney Harrison said police have not received complaints or complaints in recent years about illegal activity at the scene.
