Four men have been killed and three others seriously injured in a horror shooting in New York.

NYPD police say it happened at an illegal gambling club in Brooklyn at 6.55am Saturday local time, with officers now working to establish a motive.

“Early this morning seven people were shot, four fatally, in a social club on Utica Avenue,” NYPD police confirmed in a statement.


“Violence will not be tolerated in our community and our full resources will be deployed to solve this horrendous crime.”

It’s understood at least 15 shots were fired, with two guns including a nine-millimeter handgun and a revolver found inside the premises.

“We have four males deceased inside,” NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said.

“Their ages range from 32 to 49.”

Three other people, two men and one woman, were also shot and are being treated at a local hospital. Thankfully their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Police said an eighth person was also injured as he tried to escape.
