At least four people are dead and another three are injured after an early morning mass shooting inside a Crown Heights social club.

No arrests have been made, and police do not know the motive for the shootings, Shea said. They estimate that at least 15 people were inside the location at the time of the shooting.

NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said the three injured included two men and one women. A fourth person was also injured in the leg, while fleeing, but was not shot, Shea said at the news conference.

The site has had no history of complaints over the last couple of years, police said. The others are from different parts of Brooklyn. The four men who died ranged in age from 32 to 49, NBC New York reported.

No one was immediately charged in the shooting, but police were questioning survivors and reviewing security camera footage.

Shea said police found evidence of gambling, with cards and dice inside the space, but no evidence of alcohol consumption.

"At this point what it appears to be, is an illegal gambling location set up inside that first floor location", Shea said.

The local police precinct headquarters is two blocks away.

Two firearms were recovered on the scene.

Authorities responded to a call about shots fired just before 7 a.m. and found four men dead in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn at an address that corresponds to a private social club according to an online map of the street. As a result, police had increased patrols of the area.
