Shea said there was "evidence of gambling" including cards and dice inside.

The ages of the deceased and those shot range in age between 32 and 49 years old.

At least four people died and three were wounded in a shooting at a social club in NY early Saturday, police said.

Officials say the three injured include at least one woman, and that all injuries are serious but not considered to be life-threatening.

The six men and one woman were shot just before 7 a.m. inside a building in the Crown Heights neighbourhood of Brooklyn.

Police say the shooting took place at 74 Utica Avenue, in the Weeksville neighborhood of Brooklyn. The shooting happened in the Brooklyn borough of the city and at least three others were severely injured, NBC and other news outlets reported.

The motive for the shooting was not immediately disclosed. He said two guns were found at the scene and more could potentially be found. There have been no prior complaints of gambling at the location, they say.

No arrests have been made in connection to a shooting Saturday morning in Brooklyn, according to NYPD spokesman Brian Magoolaghan.

The victims' names have not been released but police say two of the victims are from out of state. He said there was no indication that it was a gang-related incident.
