Four people were killed and five others wounded in a bloody Saturday morning shooting at a Brooklyn nightclub, police said. Cops responding to a call of shots fired raced to the Triple A Aces club on Utica Ave near Dean St in Crown Heights about 7 am, reports New York Daily News.
Four men died at the scene. A woman and two men were also hit by gunfire, but survived with non-life threatening injuries, police said.
Two other victims suffered minor injuries but it was not immediately disclosed if they were men or women Medics rushed two surviving victims to Kings County Hospital.
The other three victims were taken to Brookdale Medical Center. No arrests have been made. It was not immediately clear how many gunmen were involved in the shooting. Several witnesses had been taken in for questioning, police sources said. Neighbors were left stunned by the bloodshed.
"It's sad," neighbor Steve Pruitt, 59, said. "Whoever did that shooting... (he) didn't care about anything."
Triple A Aces bills itself as a "private and social rental space" for "food, fun and entertainment" according to a sign above the door.
But city records show several complaints of the first floor being illegally converted into a nightclub.
